Welcome to my MWOY Fundraising Page

Come join and help Team Tom!

May 06, 2013


Thank you for your contributions to this year's campaign.

Collectively, all candidates raised over $416,000!


Welcome to my Man & Woman of the Year home page!

Please join my friends, wife Lisa, and 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 is named the Man or Woman of the Year.

I have a personal connection running as a MOTY candidate. In April 2012, I was diagnosed with multiple myeloma, a rare blood cancer that begins in the bone marrow, affecting plasma cells. Because of my young age, I started chemotherapy right away and was able to achieve remission in early October 2012. As a continuation of my treatment, I under went a bone marrow transplant in November, receiving the cells of a donor from Germany. My lab results show no trace of myeloma!

Thanks to your support we 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.

We really are changing the face of blood cancer!

All donations are greatly appreciated and are tax deductible. They 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! Watch for some exciting upcoming events.

I am excited to be part of the 2013 campaign and hope to raise enough money to help fund research in my team’s name. - Team Tom
