Congratulations to all our 2016 Man & Woman of the Year Candidates!


The Campaign
We are excited to once again begin inviting dynamic and passionate candidates to engage in a ten-week intensive fundraising competition to earn The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's "Man & Woman of the Year" titles, by raising funds for blood cancer research. . 

The Candidates
Ideal candidates are community based leaders who are philanthropic, ambitious, socially active, resourceful, goal oriented, and passionate about making a difference in the lives of people suffering from blood cancers.  Their ambition drives them to fundraise in a very large-scale capacity with record-breaking results.

The Reason
Every three minutes, someone in the United States is diagnosed with a blood cancer.  LLS is the world's largest national voluntary health organization dedicated to curing blood cancers and improving the quality of life of patients.  Fortunately, there is hope for a future free of blood cancers.
