Detour to Wonderland...Next Stop, a Cure

Apr 17, 2018

 

Welcome to Team “Detour to Wonderland”!  “Many hands make light work” is a quote that I like to reference when I’m faced with a daunting, yet surmountable task. Today is one of those times. My goal as candidate is to not only raise critical dollars, but to also educate others about the importance of research and how their contribution impacts patient care. LLS’s work is vital to beating ALL cancers and improving the quality of life for individuals currently battling this disease.

 

 

One area of concern for me is the financial uncertainties that come along with a cancer diagnosis. I’ve seen families struggle to make ends meet, take a second job, sell their home, or make the heartbreaking decision to forego treatment to avoid breaking the family financially. It is for these reasons that I have set my goal to raise $150,000!  Indeed, my goal is a lofty one, however, with your support WE could assist 60 eligible families with co-pay assistance for a year ($2500 per patient). This would mean that for at least ONE YEAR, a family could focus their energies on BEATING CANCER without the added burden of paying medical co-pays for their treatment.

 

I decided to take the leap with LLS because I believe no one should lose a loved-one to a horrific disease like cancer. I believe it’s my responsibility to do what I can to contribute to this world. It’s my purpose. Each morning, when I drop my kids off at school, I tell them to “save the world” instead of “have a good day”. It’s simple. They’re going to have days that aren’t the greatest, much like us adults. However, if I can plant a seed which fosters helping others, showing compassion, instilling hope, and getting involved with causes outside of themselves, then I’ve done my job as a parent. This is my attempt to demonstrate that to them, and I hope to be able to demonstrate it to you as well. Come save the world with me!

 

My team and I are committed to doing our parts to make the biggest impact we can over the next ten weeks.  Every dollar we raise counts as one vote for me. And while I WANT to be named Woman of the Year, it pales in comparison to my desire to help those fighting for their lives. I hope you will support me by making a secure tax-deductible donation today! Be sure to also inquire about your company’s matching gift program to double your gift to LLS. Additionally, please watch the video Fire with Fire by Ross Kauffman to see the strides that doctors are making in cancer research. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h6SzI2ZfPd4
