Help Me Save Lives

Mar 26, 2019

Every 3 minutes, someone is diagnosed with blood cancer.

More than 33% of blood cancer patients do not survive 5 years after diagnosis.

 

I want to see the end of blood cancer, so I have decided to support The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's (LLS) Man & Woman of the Year campaign. Through the end of May 2019, our team will be raising as many dollars as possible to help fund therapies that save the lives of blood cancer patients everyday. Overall, our LLS chapter has a goal to top last year's efforts which raised $1.4 million - we're going for $2 million+ this year!

 

LLS does more to advance science and support patients than any other cancer organization. It funded more than 60% of the blood cancer therapies being used to treat other cancers. LLS also funded 15 of 18 FDA approved treatments in 2017.

We are raising funds in honor of our Charlotte 2019 Girl of the Year, Emmaline, as a survivor of blood cancer. At the age of 4, Emmaline was diagnosed with Burkitt's Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma. She started 4.5 rounds of chemo right away and was able to fight the cancer into remission. Now, 3 years later, she continues to be her sassy, spunky self. However, the cancer caused many health problems that still need to be attended to. With your help, Emmaline can continue to be her fun-loving self through the support of donations to LLS.


I appreciate your support and generosity, which will make a difference in the lives of thousands battling blood cancers.  Thank you for being part of the cure. Kids like Emmaline are fortunate to benefit from research funded by donors like you.

Welcome to Kate Large's MWOY Fundraising Page!

Mar 22, 2019

Please join me in supporting The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) by making a donation to my fundraising campaign for 2019 Man & Woman of the Year.

Together, let's put an end to blood cancers once and for all. We really are getting close to that goal! 

 

Everyone has a story...

I have joined a team that is driven to find cures for blood cancer.  What's my connection to this cause?  I'm doing this to honor the memory of my good friend Amy Clark Schmidt's brother, Matthew Clark, whom her family lost to Hodgkin's lymphoma when he was 23.

 

Unfortunately too many of us are familiar with cancer and its toll.  BUT...everyone wins when cancer loses. Thanks to your support, my fundraising 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.


Our team is working to raise as much as possible over the next 10 weeks - we've set a collective goal to raise $150,000 for LLS. Every dollar we raise counts as one vote for my team's candidate, Mike Wall. The candidate whose team tallies the most votes earns the prestigious title of "Man or Woman of the Year".  We are dedicated to supporting wonderful people like our 2019 Girl of the Year, 7-year-old Emmaline Trinagalo who fought Burkitt's Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma and is now in remission.

 

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. Thank you in advance for your wonderful support!
