Welcome to Katie Tipper-McWhorter's MWOY Fundraising Page!

Welcome to my MWOY Fundraising Page

May 13, 2014

 I will never forget the moment my mother received the news that Aunt Patty had lost her battle with Leukemia. Though I was a little girl, it is a profound image that has stayed with me throughout my life. Since then I have looked for ways to promote cancer research and awareness in the hopes that one day no one else would lose their loved ones to cancer ever again.


Today I am so grateful for the opportunity to support the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) as a candidate for their Man & Woman of the Year fundraising competition. This national campaign focuses on raising funds, awareness, and advocacy for those battling blood cancers such as Leukemia and Lymphoma. I am excited to participate in an organization that can make our dream of curing cancer a reality.

Please join me in supporting The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society by making a donation to my fundraising campaign. With your support, we can raise funds for research, awareness and advocacy and hopefully surpass my goal of $100,000. 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. While I see this as a friendly competition and creative way to raise awareness and support, we candidates are truly up against the one and same adversary: cancer.


I hope you will join me in my effort to find a cure for blood cancers. On behalf of blood cancer patients everywhere, thank you for your support!!

I also thought I would share this video with you about a family that survived Leukemia. Their story is so powerful and inspirational!



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.


Please visit my Web site often for updates on my campaign's progress, and bring friends who would also like to donate!


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