Someday is Today! Let's save lives together!

I appreciate your support!

May 23, 2013

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.

This year's LLS Boy of the Year "Action Jackson" as appropriately named has the exact diagnosis as me non-Hodgkin Lymphoma - Stage IV. We're both living proof that you can survive cancer with today's progress. 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. I personally live today thanks to the support of others before me.

I accepted the nomination for the "LLS Man of the Year" Campaign to continue to save lives through raising funds to support research. Someday is Today and I am asking you to give now and share this message with your circle of influence. Please visit my website often and bring friends who would also will be able to donate!

I promised "Action Jackson" and his family that I would do everything in my power to raise the most funds. Please help me do so. I appreciate you and need your support today.

Please consider skipping a week's worth of gourmet coffee at minimum.

It's that easy to save lives.

We really are changing the face of blood cancer - TOGETHER!

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.

On behalf of blood cancer patients everywhere I thank you for your support!

Barry and "Action Jackson"

Watch Jackson's story here:


Whenever we talk about cancer, we always use the same word. Someday. Someday they’ll be a cure. Someday we won’t lose the people we love. But when is someday? Someday is today.

Simply put, we are closer than ever to the cures for many kinds of blood cancers. We are saving more lives and saving them faster than at any time in our 60+ years.

The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society has invested nearly one billion dollars to accelerate cancer treatments once thought impossible. In 1964, the five-year survival rate for the most common childhood Leukemia was 3%. Today it is 90%.

Cures today, not someday. That’s the goal. And soon, with your help, blood cancer will be yesterday’s news. PLEASE GIVE GENEROUSLY and share this web address:

We are sorry donations are no longer being accepted for this participant for this event.
