Welcome to Mindy Miller Hill's MWOY Fundraising Page!

Candidate for 2017 Woman of the Year

Mar 17, 2017

 

My father, Luke Gill passed away in May 2015 following a devastating 18-month battle with Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML), a type of cancer that begins in the bone marrow. AML is the same type of leukemia that TNT broadcaster Craig Sager fought, and the most lethal of all blood cancers.

A 25-year veteran of the U.S. Air Force followed by 30 years in the aviation industry, Dad was the rock in our family. Whether talking with a fellow serviceman, a friend on the golf course or someone he'd just met, his strength of character, self-depracating wit and understated charm endeared him to people immediately. Not a day goes by that I'm not reminded what a special person he was to me and many others.

In his memory, I am raising funds for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's (LLS) 2017 Woman of the Year, a 10-week campaign that runs from April 6 - June 16, 2017. Every dollar I raise counts as one vote. The candidate who gets the most votes, thereby raising the most money is named the Man or Woman of the Year.

My personal goal is to raise $100,000 by June 16, 2017. For every $50,000 I raise, LLS will name a grant in my father's memory and the funds will support research for AML, the most under-funded type of blood cancer.

AML therapies haven't evolved like they have for other cancers which have experienced significant breakthroughs as a result of research funding. People who are diagnosed with AML are typically treated with the same chemotherapies that have been used for the past 40 years. This limited awareness and lack of resources toward finding a cure for AML is beyond disheartening for those impacted by this deadly disease.

All donations are greatly appreciated and tax-deductible. Please visit my website often and share it with friends who would also like to donate. On behalf of my family and blood cancer patients everywhere, thank you for your support!
