As most of you know, I am a cancer survivor. So, let me start off by thanking you for your thoughts and prayers and telling you a little bit of my story.

 

In July 2014, I was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. After various biopsies, pulmonary and cardiac tests, a bone marrow biopsy (the worst pain I've ever experienced), fertility treatments and surgery (Chemotherapy can leave you infertile, so freezing my eggs was a way to ensure that I'll be able to have kids some day.), and a portacath surgery (It was implanted in my chest and used to administer chemotherapy.), I finally started chemotherapy.

 

I had an infusion every other week. I would sit in a big blue chair for four or five hours and watch a mix of different, poisonous chemicals drip into my bloodstream. On the day of each treatment, and four or five days after, I felt like I was slowly dying. I was nauseous, fatigued, had horrible insomnia, depressed and all of my body hair fell out. The list of chemotherapy side effects goes on and on. My treatments lasted from August to December 2014. My last infusion was on December 2nd, so I recently celebrated the one-year anniversary of my last treatment. (Yay!)

 

I am now in complete remission and I am so blessed. I’ve been able to part of some amazing things to help other cancer patients and survivors. That is why I am so honored to be nominated for Woman of the Year! 

 

Please join me in supporting The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) by making a donation to my fundraising campaign for Man or Woman of the Year. I am part of team working to raise as much as possible in a 10-week period. 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.

 

But as you know, everyone wins when cancer loses, and thanks to your support, my efforts will help fund the therapies and treatments that save lives, not someday but today.

 

Over the years, support from people like you has been responsible for the blood cancer advancements that have doubled, tripled, and in some cases quadrupled the survival rate for some blood cancers.

 

Many LLS supported therapies not only help blood cancer patients, but are also now used to treat patients with rare forms of stomach and skin cancers and are in clinical trials for patients with lung, brain, breast, pancreatic and prostate cancers. And LLS funded drugs like targeted therapies and immunotherapies are now saving thousands of lives every day.

 

We really are getting close to our goal of a world without blood cancers!

 

All donations are greatly appreciated and 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 tell friends who would also like to donate!

 

On behalf of blood cancer patients everywhere, thank you for your support! For more information about LLS, please visit www.lls.org

 

Thanks,

Kalina Campion
