The Will to Win.

I have 3 kids, two of which are sport loving, all in, play hard, life loving boys. I guess you could say they love to win, but really what they love the most is winning with along side their teams. There is something pretty amazing about that feeling of victory when the ones you have worked hard with come together for a goal, and you feel the rush of victory after a long faught battle.

This is exactly why I have joined my dear friend, Jenna Whitehead, as she has entered the race for the LLS Woman of the Year. You see this isn't just a race or game we are hoping to win, it is  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". 

Each dollar is point on our teams score board, yes, and let's be honest... we REALLY want to win. But what really counts here is each dollar is helping families get one step closer to not having fear be associated with a blood cancer diagnosis. Blood cancer has stolen so many days, so many nights of sleep, and unfotunately so many lives as well. LLS has been hard at work helping find treatments and protocols that are saving lives. Jenna and Willie's family is LIVING proof of the good work they are doing. Willie is a survivor, and now fighting cancer is in thier blood. 

We have the will to win! 

My personal family has also had it's scary encounters with blood cancer. We have first hand seen how it can change the lives of those it touches. I have been so challenged and inspired by Willie and Jennas lives as they have trudged thier way through the muck of cancer and relapse. I have seen thier little girls learn to understand truths and realities no child should have to understand. I have also seen the power of people who come together and show up when it really counts. 

I am asking you to consider stepping into the game with me. Throw on the jersey that says "I am in this with you" and help us find a cure. Your donation, no matter the size, means the world to families facing cancer. LLS proudly helps families right here in our community with expsenses, treatments, and on going research.

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.

All donations are greatly appreciated and tax deductible. 

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