Friends & Family!
I know, shocker...I'm fundraising for blood cancer reseach again!
I've put together another bowling team for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. But this time it is in honor of my babe of a boyfriend, Brent Evans. Brent was rediagnosed on Friday, February 12, 2016 with his stage IV heptasplenic t-cell non-hodgkin's lymphoma. His friends will be hitting the lanes on Saturday, September 24th at Southbowl of Philadelphia for Brent while he is undergoing his second stemcell transplant at Memorial Sloan Kettering. Brent will not only be at the bowling competition in spirit...but certainly by videochat too!
LLS's continued advancements over the years, are responsible for the blood cancer survival rate doubling and tripling; in some cases, the survival rate has even quadrupled.
And many LLS supported therapies not only help blood cancer patients but are now used to treat patients with rare forms of stomach and skin cancers. They're even being tested in clinical trials for patients with a range of cancers including lung, brain, breast, pancreatic and prostate cancers. LLS funded drugs are now being tested for patients with other non-cancerous diseases like Diabetes, Rheumatoid Arthritis and Multiple Sclerosis.
All donations are greatly appreciated and are tax deductible. They'll not only support LLS research but patient services, advocacy, public and professional education, and community services as well.
