Welcome to Kosta Manakos' SOY Fundraising Page!

Jan 23, 2018

Welcome To My Fundraising Page. 

I have made it my personal goal to raise $65,000 so that I may name a research project after my father, and in order to do this my team, George's Gift, and I need your help! We came up with the name George's Gift because when my team and I raise the money needed to name a research project we are going to name it after my dad, and this will be his gift. Hopefully this project will be the one that will end all blood cancers, so that no one else has to experience what it's like to grow up without a father.

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.

We really are changing the face of blood cancer!

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.

Please visit my Web site often and bring friends who would also like to donate!

On behalf of blood cancer patients everywhere I thank you for your support!
