How LLS Saved My Life (and MORE Lives with Your Donations)!

Mar 26, 2018

Last month I celebrated my 55th birthday – which would be unremarkable, except that it was also the 25th anniversary of my diagnosis with Stage IV Blood Cancer (which I eventually beat)!


The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (#LLS) literally saved my life 25 years ago - purchasing my first Chemotherapy drugs that helped stop my body’s rapid tumor growth - eventually helping me push my Stage IV Hodgkin’s Lymphoma into full remission – NEVER to return! You can read my “whole story” (shared for the first time in 25 years here): https://bit.ly/DrishaLLSWOY.


Therefore, I am celebrating my 25-year anniversary by running for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of Greater Sacramento’s “Woman of the Year” (#LLSWOY)!


Will you please donate to my campaign and help fund Blood Cancer cures? Easily donate here: https://pages.mwoy.org/sac/sac18/dleggitt.


Or via social media; or check; or cash; or carrier pigeon! Whatever is easiest for you to help me, help thousands of others like me beat cancer!


From now – May 12, 2018, every dollar I raise for LLS  = 1 LLSWOY  Vote for me!


I must raise at least $250,000 to beat last year’s record – and potentially be the FIRST LLS Greater Sacramento  and Stage IV Blood Cancers patient to win the national “Woman of the Year” title!


Every dollar I raise will fund programs like the emergency and other patient care that saved my life. And it will also fund cutting-edge research identifying blood and other cancer cures.


I was very fortunate LLS was there to save my life 25 years ago; but I want to make sure my granddaughter Malaya Belle, and all of my (and your) friends and family NEVER have to go through what I went through fighting cancer.



Will you please donate to help me achieve this goal: https://pages.mwoy.org/sac/sac18/dleggitt?


Please also forward, post, push, promote my story to everyone you know that wants to see a cure for cancer in their lifetime!


And I still need more volunteers for my fun, fundraising event teams - and sponsorships! Please contact me with any ideas or opportunities: Drisha@Luhdorff.net or (916) 206-2553!


Thank you, for helping me save more people like me – together, we can “CATCH! CURE! CRUSH CANCER!” #CCCC


Stay tuned – there are MANY great posts ahead through the #LLSWOY campaign: #PuppiesandBabies #MWOYSac!


Wish me luck!


Best Wishes,


Drisha Leggitt, Leukemia & Lymphoma Society “Woman of the Year” Candidate

Welcome to Drisha Leggitt's MWOY Fundraising Page!

Jan 19, 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

We are sorry donations are no longer being accepted for this participant for this event.
