   Meet Mike Clark, Executive VP/ General Manager, Lehigh Valley Steelhawks

Please join me in supporting The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) by making a donation to my fundraising campaign for Man or Woman of the Year.

I am part of team working to raise as much as possible in a 10-week period. Every dollar I raise counts as one vote and the candidate who gets the most votes/raises the most money is named the Man or Woman of the Year.

But as you know, everyone wins when cancer loses, and thanks to your support, my efforts will help fund the therapies and treatments that save lives, not someday ut today.

In 2016, our organization the Lehigh Valley Steelhawks Professional Arena Football team was a sponsor of a dear friend of mine Chrissy Hixson who ran for LLS Woman of the Year.  She raised over $71,000.00 for this great cause and inspired me to use our team’s public platform to give back as well.  On a personal note, my Best Friend’s Mother was diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma a few years back.  My family had known their family from their younger days, and my best friend and I have remained close since elementary school.  I watched from the outside as she fought each and every day thru treatments and therapy all the while keeping a smile on her face and living life to the fullest.  Unfortunately the cancer took his mother in May of 2016.  But before she passed, she told me that she was happy, and to cherish the time you have with your friends and loved ones.   I will always remember that.  So, why have I decided to compete for Man of The Year and help raise funds you might ask?  It is for Mrs. McGuire, the entire McGuire family, and so that I, my loved ones, and many others never HAVE to be affected by any form of blood cancer in the future.

 

Over the years, support from people like you has been responsible for the blood cancer advancements that have doubled, tripled, and in some cases quadrupled the survival rate for some blood cancers.  

Many LLS supported therapies not only help blood cancer patients, but are also now used to treat patients with rare forms of stomach and skin cancers and are in clinical trials for patients with lung, brain, breast, pancreatic and prostate cancers. And LLS funded drugs like targeted therapies and immunotherapies are now saving thousands of lives every day.

We really are getting close to our goal of a world without blood cancers!

All donations are greatly appreciated and tax deductible. They'll not only support LLS research, but patient services, advocacy, public and professional education, and community services as well.

Please visit my website often and tell friends who would also like to donate!

On behalf of blood cancer patients everywhere, thank you for your support! For more information about LLS, please visit www.lls.org

The Man & Woman of the Year campaign has concluded and the winners have been announced. However, we deeply appreciate your ongoing donation and support of LLS’s mission. To make an incredible impact not someday, but today click on the donate button.
