Cancer Don’t Care – Two Days To Go!
There are just two days left in my Woman of the Year campaign for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. It’s been a ten-week journey during which I’ve challenged myself, have been reminded that the world contains loving and supportive people, and have realized we possess the power to make good spring from the roots of tragedy and loss.
My friend, Stefanie, said it best:
“Sometimes we shut down when terrible things happen, and sometimes we stand up and fight. Both are acceptable, understandable, and necessary reactions. But thank goodness for the fight.”
The money raised by this campaign helps further The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s mission: Cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease, and myeloma, and improve the quality of life of patients and their families. Your generous support provides patient aid, supports research, and advances public policy.
In some cases, treatments that have been developed specifically for blood cancers have proven to treat other types of cancers and serious diseases. This means the research and development funded by The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society reaches beyond the borders of blood cancers alone.
Our chance to make a significant impact through this campaign is down to the wire. Two days. We have two days to unite against cancer.
Please show your support as I bring the Cancer Don’t Care campaign to a close. There are still several options to support through online auctions, or by donation. Remember, all gifts are tax deductible.

DONATE – online giving is secure and easy.
I offer my most profound thanks for all the support you’ve shown to this campaign and me. For me, it’s been a vehicle of healing. For those who benefit from the services provided by The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, it’s a chance to beat the odds against cancer.
Cancer Don’t Care. We Do.
Warmest regards always,
