Welcome to my Man & Woman of the Year home page!
Boy and Girl of the Year 2013 Hannah and Lamar
I have been lucky enough in my life not to be directly affected by a blood cancer or within my immediate family. However, throughout my time owning Gigi's Glitzy Boutique, I have had numerous customers who have had children battling Leukemia. I have always felt the urge to do something, to take the pain that these children and their families feel away. I unfortunately cannot do that, but raising money for LLS can help make what these families go through a little easier. The money raised helps to not only find cures for these rare blood cancers, it also helps fund programs for the families of the children/adults battling cancer. When someone is diagnosed with cancer, everyone in his or her family is affected. This holds especially true when it is a child.
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.
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.
And many LLS supported therapies not only help blood cancer patients but are now used to treat patients with rare forms of stomach and skin cancers. They're even being tested in clinical trials for patients with a range of cancers including lung, brain, breast, pancreatic and prostate cancers. LLS funded drugs like Gleevec, Sprycel, Arinza, Tasigna and Zolinza are now being tested for patients with other non-cancerous diseases like Diabetes, Rheumatoid Arthritis and Multiple Sclerosis.
We really are changing the face of blood cancer!
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!
On behalf of blood cancer patients everywhere I thank you for your support! For more information about LLS, please visit www.lls.org
