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

Reid is the son of our good friends, Ray and Beth Besch.  He was diagnosed with Acute Leukemia a little over a year ago.  He spent 7 months receiving chemotherapy and on August 16, 2018 was given a precious gift.  A 19 year old female donated her bone marrow and Reid is doing great.  

Reid was nominated for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's (LLS) Man of the Year fundraising campaign.  Reid has asked me to be on his team. 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 of the Year". 

Leukemia is the disease that took my husband's brother at the age of 7, 48 years ago.  Our oldest son, Patrick, is named after him.  The survival rate, like most cancers today, is much better than 1971 thanks to organizations like LLS.  However we still have a long way to go.

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.

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!
