The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society Presents

Man & Woman of the Year

Man & Woman of the Year is philanthropic competition to support blood cancer research among a group of motivated and dedicated individuals in communities across the United States.  Candidates form powerful fundraising teams and compete in honor of two local children who are blood cancer survivors. 

The man and woman who have raised the most funds during the ten-week campaign are awarded the prestigious title of Man or Woman of the Year in their community.  The man and woman who have raised the most across the entire US will be recognized as the national Man & Woman of the year.

Thank you to everyone who attended and supported The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) 2020 Rhode Island Man & Woman of the Year Virtual Grand Finale celebration. Your commitment to helping patients who are fighting for their lives every day is critical now more than ever and we couldn’t be more appreciative of your support.
