Thank you to everyone who donated. With your help we raised $50,000 to be put towards a research grant for Pediatric & Young Adult Blood Cancers in honor of Eli Morrison.

And the winner is....

May 05, 2019

With your support I raised $48,787 which was second only to Julie Barnes Maurer who raised over $100,000. Being so close to the $50,000 mark I have the opportunity to take donations for a bit longer and if I raise the remaining $1,213 I will be able to name a grant. Any amount you are able to donate is greatly appreciated. Stay tuned for pictures of the Grand Finale Gala and updates as to where we are with our final goal.

Why?????

Thank you for visiting my page. 

When I was asked to fundraise with The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) in their annual “Woman of The Year Campaign”, I hesitated because my family has no direct link to leukemia. But, so many other cancers have impacted my life. Just before I was born, my cousin lost her battle with brain cancer at the age of 16. One of my first memories is losing my grandmother to breast cancer when I was only 5 and as a young teen, I almost lost my dad to bowel cancer. He survived and lived cancer free until he passed away from something unrelated, just a few months shy of turning 80.

I did some research and discovered that many cancer therapies approved by the FDA were first approved for blood cancer patients. As well, many of these LLS-supported therapies not only help blood cancer patients but are now approved to treat patients with rare forms of cancers, noncancerous diseases and autoimmune diseases. Okay, I thought, there is my connection, I think I will do this. Then I found out that each year LLS also nominate a Girl and Boy who have beat Leukemia. The adorable little girl Luci, lives in DeWitt.  The sweet little boy is Eli, my 7 year old neighbor. Of course I’m going to try and raise as much money for LLS as I can!

Please help me help The Leukemia Lymphoma Society reach their ultimate goal, a world without cancer.

All tax deductible donations are much appreciated to continue supporting LLS research, patient services, advocacy, public and professional education, and community services.

Welcome to Roslyn Grafstein's MWOY Fundraising Page!

Dec 18, 2018

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.
