Team "Why Not?"

Feb 13, 2019

WHO: Me, Malia Schofield, Team "Why Not?", and YOU!

 


WHAT: Leukemia & Lymphoma Society Man & Woman of the Year Fundraising Campaign

 

Each year The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) launches its Man & Woman of the Year fundraising campaign, and I was honored to join this year’s efforts as a 2019 Woman of the year candidate! Our team; Team "Why Not?" is going to be a force this year! There are many reasons to be proud to support LLS’s efforts.  For instance, of the 39 new cancer-fighting drugs approved by the F.D.A in the past 10 years, 19 of them were initially developed for blood cancers and many had funding from LLS! Of those 19, ALL of them show promise for treating other cancers:

 

  • Gleevec, used for patients with chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML), was recently approved to treat stomach ulcers and is in trials for breast, prostate and ovarian cancer treatments.

  • Velcade, that targeted drug to treat patients with myeloma or mantle cell lymphoma, is also in trials for people with kidney, lung and thyroid cancers.

  • Rituxan, the first approved targeted cancer drug that was initially used for non-Hodgkin lymphoma patients, is used in 11 blood cancer and rheumatoid arthritis treatments.

This is an organization that is doing the right things with the dollars it raises, and I’m so proud to be associated with LLS!

 

WHEN: February 21 - May 3, ending with a Back Tie Gala and Live and Silent Auctions to be held on MAY 3, 2019 at The Charleston Convention Center in North Charleston

 

WHERE: Right here in the Lowcountry and all over the nation!

 

WHY: Better question....WHY NOT?! Like many of you, I have witnessed first hand the debilitating effects that leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and myeloma can have on those who suffer from these blood cancers, and on the friends and family who care for and nurture their loved ones. In fact, leukemia still causes more deaths than any other cancer among children.

MY STORY: Growing up, I watched a dear friend lose her mother to breast cancer and another lose her father to blood cancer. As an adult, I’ve watched some of my closest friends struggle as their parents and grandparents lose their own fights with this disease. Closest to home, my fiance, Chris, lost his grandfather, Felix Callari, to pancreatic cancer in 2008. Although I never had the chance to meet one of the most important men in Chris’s life, I have seen the pain it’s brought to my new family, and am running this campaign in his memory!

Feb 04, 2019

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

The Man & Woman of the Year campaign has concluded and the winners have been announced. However, we deeply appreciate your ongoing donation and support of LLS’s mission. To make an incredible impact not someday, but today click on the donate button.
