How Do You Cure Cancer?
Your support is the first step to curing blood cancers….
I was recently nominated by the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society to be their Woman of The Year!
Yes, this nomination holds a grand “title” but it’s really all about giving back to something that I am extremely passionate about. Please join me in this journey and help spread awareness of the campaign. We really can beat cancer!
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.
Whenever we talk about cancer, we always use the same word. Someday. Someday there will be a cure. Someday we won’t lose the people we love. But when is someday? With LLS’s research partnerships and collaborations with pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies, patients support services and advocates working for blood cancer patients everywhere, someday is today.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is LLS?
The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) is the largest voluntary health organization dedicated to funding research, finding cures and ensuring access to treatments for blood cancer patients.
Since 1949 LLS has been on the forefront of blood cancer advances such as chemotherapies and stem cell transplantation leading the way to the targeted therapies and immunotherapies that are saving thousands of lives today.
What is Man & Woman of the Year?
The Man & Woman of the Year (MWOY) campaign is a spirited fundraising competition in communities across the U.S. in which participants build fundraising teams to compete for the title of Man or Woman of the Year. They raise funds for LLS blood cancer research in honor of local children who are blood cancer survivors, the Boy & Girl of the Year. Each dollar raised counts as a vote. The titles are awarded to the man and woman in each community who raises the most funds during the ten-week campaign; the top local fundraisers in the country also win the national titles.
What are the rules of fundraising?
The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Man & Woman of the Year campaign is a national ten-week campaign to raise funds to help find cures for blood cancers. The campaign includes individuals in the community who agree to utilize their leadership abilities and resources to conduct their own fundraising campaigns to help The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society fund blood cancer research and provide education and support services for patients and their families. Before that ten week period, candidates may collect pledges. Pledging is a great way to accumulate the donations and sponsorships that will be needed in that 10-week period. As of April 6, 2017, I am now able to collect donations!
