Welcome to Pankaj Ramani's MWOY Fundraising Page!

Last year, I had the honor of being nominated as a candidate for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Man of the Year. Over the course of ten weeks in 2018, I spoke passionately about the pain of cancer, why it’s important to get involved in helping to find a cure, and just as importantly, how cancer DOES NOT DISCRIMINATE.

Because of your overwhelming love and support, together we raised $172,044 – funds that will have a huge impact, allowing LLS to fund meaningful and impactful research as well as provide patient and caregiver support.

I cannot thank you enough for all your love and support last year. But our job is not done.

Never in our wildest dreams did we ever expect to hear the words “You have cancer”. But as I said so often, and continue to say, cancer DOES NOT and WILL NOT discriminate.

Cancer has a funny way of sneaking up on you. On January 2nd, the love of my life, and my ROCK, Bhavna, was diagnosed with Stage 1 breast cancer. Fortunately, Bhavna has been getting her mammogram annually for the last 9 years, and so we caught this cancer early. Her treatment plan includes 8 rounds of chemotherapy, followed by surgery and then 6 weeks of daily radiation. Today, we can tell you exactly what the pain of cancer looks and feels like. This is a pain that nobody should ever have to endure.

Because of all the advancements in modern science, after 6 rounds of chemo, we have seen positive results, with the tumor shrinking to 1/3 its original size. Bhavna and I wake up every day with a positive outlook and we look forward to when this is all in our rear-view mirror.

But what do we do now?

Bhavna is 100% committed to her cancer fight and together, we will be victorious.

Bhavna and I are committed more than ever to raise awareness about cancer and spread the word that together we all can do something about it to where nobody must go through the pain of cancer.

Bhavna and I so grateful for all that The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society does to fight cancer. Since 2017, the FDA has approved 33 blood cancer treatments and LLS helped advance 27 of these somewhere along their development journey. With our support of LLS, one day they will lead us to a cure for blood cancer and other diseases!

Your support in this fight is greatly appreciated!

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

I have joined a team that is driven to find cures for blood cancer. Our team is working to raise as much as possible over the next 10 weeks. Every dollar we raise counts as one vote for my team's candidate. The candidate whose team tallies the most votes earns the prestigious title of "Man or Woman of the Year". 


As you know, though, everyone wins when cancer loses. Thanks to your support, my efforts will help fund therapies and treatments that are saving lives. 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.
