I believe cancer has affected the lives of every person I know in one way or another. Unfortunately, several close friends of mine have recently lost their battle to cancer and several are in the process of battling this disease. To honor those we have lost, their courageous strength, and determined spirits, I have recently accepted an opportunity to help patients and their families who are currently going through a similar situation by accepting my nomination as Man of the Year by the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. I am incredibly blessed and honored to have the opportunity to help an organization that is working to find a cure for blood cancers and in turn helping to cure all cancers.
As a nominee for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s Man of the Year, I have set a goal to raise $200,000 by May 17th, 2018 and join the fight to find a cure against blood cancers and in turn ALL cancers. Through this campaign I look to you, my friends, my family, and more to support me in this goal by providing corporate sponsorship or personal tax deductible donations in any amount you can give.
I draw my inspiration from the strength of my friends and loved ones who have gone through such a heart throbbing experience. If we all group together, even the smallest amount, the masses can make an enormous difference and that is why I am asking for your gracious support.
The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, founded in 1949, is the world’s largest health organization dedicated to funding blood cancer research and providing education and patient services. They work tirelessly to improve the quality of life of patients and their families dealing with this difficult diagnosis. Since its founding, survival rates have doubled, tripled and even quadrupled.
Every ten minutes someone dies from blood cancer. Let’s fight those odds together!
You can make a donation on my website dedicated to this campaign at: Donate Here! Support the Cause!
Sponsorship and other in-kind opportunities are also available as we look to kick off our fundraising event March 29, 2018 at Harbourside Rooftop in Jupiter, Florida at 6 pm with a Silent Disco where all funds will be 100% donated to the cause!
I am honored to be nominated as Man of the Year to raise money for this cause that I truly believe in. For me, it is not about the title but about the lives we can touch together.
Thank you for your support!
