Team Carl is dedicated to

finding a cure for blood cancer.

I have chosen to run on behalf of Sammi Molinelli, the 2014 Girl of the Year, and Danny van Schaik, the 2014 Boy of the Year.  Sammi celebrated seven years in remission from ALL, and her family is proud to call her a survivor.  Danny is currently in treatment for ALL, and he is fighting bravely!


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.
