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

Attention family, friends, colleagues and followers. The time is now to join me in a battle to find a cure for leukemia, lymphoma, multiple myeloma and other blood cancers.

I was nominated to run for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) 2018 Man & Woman of the Year campaign in North Texas. It was a request I couldn’t turn down. My real brush with blood cancer came in 2005 when my friend and fraternity brother, Elijah Alexander, was diagnosed with multiple myeloma, a rare and incurable cancer of the bone marrow. As a reporter, I chronicled his journey as he battled to stay alive, give back and live his life to the fullest.

At his lowest point, Alexander, a former NFL 235-pound linebacker, was a frail 178-pounder who couldn't shower himself or sit up to eat.

But thanks to chemotherapy and then a stem cell transplant, Alexander battled back to have an active life. He resumed coaching youth football and took up the fight against cancer, especially in children.

"Life is going to knock you down," Alexander said at the time. "Who is going to get up and who is going to stay down? It's like me being ill. I don't have time for pity. I have to do what I need to do to get better to take care of my family."

Alexander began the Tackle Myeloma Foundation. It became the Tackle Cancer Foundation, which provided support, and financial aid to families and caregivers fighting myeloma and childhood cancers.

With the help of his sports celebrity friends, he hosted an annual charity golf tournament and poker tournament.

Alexander was at the forefront of the fight, speaking all over the country and going to numerous conferences as the face of multiple myeloma until his untimely death in 2010.

His wife, Kimberly Alexander, advisory chair for the 2018 Man & Woman of the Year campaign, picked up the baton for her late husband and continued the fight. She doesn’t take no for an answer. It’s her belief that I can use my platform to help continue the fight. I definitely can’t let her down. I supported Alexander’s brother, Shannon Ridley, in his bid for the LLS Man of the Year in 2016 as well as my fraternity brother, Daryl Alexander, in his winning campaign in 2017.

While my first true experience with a blood cancer came in 2005, I have been touched by numerous battles all around, including church members, the daughter of a Cowboys football coach, the point guard for the University of Texas basketball team who was an Irving native and most recently the son of Dallas Cowboys broadcaster Babe Laufenberg. It’s my mission that I can use my name and platform to bring more awareness about and dollars to the services that LLS provides. The Man & Woman of the Year is a 10-week philanthropic campaign for leaders throughout communities across the country. The title is awarded to the candidate whose team raises the most funds. The top candidate in the country is awarded the national title. ALL funds raised go directly to LLS. This is a frightening, but exciting undertaking. It’s something I have never done before, but the people that nominated me believe I can make an impact and make a difference. It goes without saying that I can’t do it alone. I am going to need the full support of my friends, my family and my community. The campaign kicks off March 6th. We have 10 weeks to make it happen. The donation link is live now. My team and I will be hosting fun events throughout DFW, so stay tuned. Please feel free to DM me with questions and/or sponsorship opportunities! 

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
