Welcome to Dwight Taylor's MWOY Fundraising Page!

My Story:

Mar 28, 2017

I have been given a wonderful opportunity to help others. Each year, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) launches its Man & Woman of the Year fundraising campaign, and I am honored to join this year’s efforts as a 2017 man of the year candidate.

I am writing today to ask for your support of LLS’s mission in its efforts to find cures for blood cancers and to assist patients and families as they battle these diseases. Like many of you, I have witnessed firsthand the debilitating effects that cancer can have on those diagnosed.

I am dedicating my campaign to my mother Peggy Anne Taylor who died from b

reast cancer that spread to her brain while I was a young man at James Madison University.  I have heard about several cancer research advancements during my involvement with LLS.  I strongly believe that if the treatments available today were accessible to my family when my mother was diagnosed, she might be here to meet my twins today. 

Please join me in making a difference in the fight to cure cancer. I would be honored if you would consider a donation, contribution, a corporate sponsorship, or purchasing a ticket and joining me at the Grand Finale Gala on May 20th at the Altria Theater in Richmond.

Why help?

  • - Every three minutes someone is diagnosed with a blood cancer.
  • - Every ten minutes a life is lost due to a blood cancer.
  • - 76% of LLS revenue supports cancer research and patient services.
  • - Support from people like you has been responsible for not only doubling, but    quadrupling the survival rate for some blood cancers.

Thank you in advance for your support.  Together we can make cancer hit the road!
