Welcome to Chandler Carranza's MWOY Fundraising Page!

The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) Western PA & WV Chapter will kick off its 9th annual Man & Woman of the Year campaign (MWOY), on Thursday, March 8, 2018. This campaign is organized with the help of local philanthropists committed to cancer cures including Chandler Carranza, Division Director of Control States at Ole Smoky Distillery.

Candidates for Man & Woman of the Year will be raising funds to invest in research to advance lifesaving treatments and cures for blood cancer patients. The male and female candidates who raise the most money will win the local titles of Man of the Year and Woman of the Year, and go on to compete for national honors against more than 40 other winners from across the country.


I have had a number of family and friends affected by cancer. By helping LLS in the fight to cure blood cancers, I am able to help those I care about fight their own personal battles. 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. 


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
