I Am Woman, Fight For A Cure
“We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.”
It is with gratitude and honor that I announce my candidacy for the 2014 Leukemia & Lymphoma Society Woman of the Year.
The LLS Man & Woman of the Year is a national 10-week campaign – from March to June – that focuses on raising funds for the fight against blood cancers such as leukemia, lymphoma and myeloma. Since 1998, the campaign has raised more than $100 million and last year, 781 candidates across the country raised an astounding $22.9 million in ten weeks!
I have often said, “It takes a team,” and this is no exception. Join me as I commit to the fight against blood cancer with the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. The reality is we are hard-pressed to find someone whose life has not been impacted by cancer – whether it is ourself, a family member or friend, a loved one, neighbor, colleague – the list goes on.
Together, we can support the advances that bring our world closer to a cure.
In the coming weeks, I’ll be sharing more information about my campaign and my reasons for running. For now, pledge to stand with me as we fight to kick blood cancer to the curb!
