Welcome to my Man & Woman of the Year home page!


Please join me in supporting The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) by making a donation to my fundraising campaign. Every dollar I raise counts as one vote and the candidate who gets the most votes /raises the most money is named the Man or Woman of the Year.


My campaign team, Leukin' for a Cure, and I will be raising money in honor of Francesco Galvano and in memory of Joe Pennisi. Francesco was diagnosed with leukemia in July 2011 when he was only 11. He is now 13, back in school, and keeping us all entertained with his wonderful personality. Joey is a good friend of mine who lost his battle to bone cancer on January 23, 2008 when he was only 19 years old. Joe fought his cancer bravely for three years and was a true leader and inspiration to all of his friends and family. I miss him everyday and am doing this campaign so that no one ever has to lose anyone as incredible as Joe to this terrible disease.


Thanks to your support, my efforts will help fund the therapies and treatments and help save lives today.


LLS's continued advancements over the years, are responsible for the blood cancer survival rate doubling and tripling; in some cases, the survival rate has even quadrupled.


All donations are greatly appreciated and are tax deductible. They'll not only support LLS research but patient services, advocacy, public and professional education, and community services as well.


Please visit my Web site often and bring friends who would also like to donate!
