Why am I raising money for LLS?

My good friends Cameron and Kandis Fay led a successful campaign for the Man and Woman of the Year campaign for Cameron back in 2015. As someone who cares a great deal about finding a cure for cancer, I donated to help him reach his goal in honor of his father that had recently passed away. Amazingly, Cameron raised over $100,000 and came in second with his campaign. Cut to a few months ago to me learning that Cameron and Kandis had nominated me to run my own campaign in 2018! I was floored to think they thought I would be a good candidate to raise funds and awareness for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. So here we are!

My Goal...

As Cameron did, my goal is to raise at least $100,000. As daunting as that number is, the reason is this: $50,000 fully funds a research program for one year. So I've decided to fund TWO for one year. Imagine-- just imagine-- the good, the potential, that could be the result of these programs!

Did You Know?

Blood cancers are the #3 cancer killer in the U.S., behind only lung and gastrointestinal cancers.

But, less than 1 in 10 new cancer diagnoses will be a blood cancer. And, there are many rare subtypes of leukemias, lymphomas and myelomas.

Despite these corporate disincentives, about 1/4 (225) of more than 900 new treatments in clinical testing by companies (as of June 2012) were tested as treatments for blood cancer patients!

Many of these drugs will help patients with a variety of diagnoses, owing to shared molecular targets, and many of the molecular targets wereadvanced by LLS-funded investigators.
