Since the early 1960s, five-year survival rates for many blood cancer patients have doubled, tripled or even quadrupled. And many LLS supported therapies not only help blood cancer patients but are helping patients with other cancers and serious diseases. In fact, drugs first approved for blood cancers are now approved to treat patients with stomach cancers, skin cancers, and autoimmune diseases like rheumatoid arthritis.
Every 3 minutes someone unwillingly joins the fight of another blood cancer. Among those people unwillingly joining the fight against cancer,there were my love ones. Over the past 4 years i've had my mind on making a difference, i thought about many things i could do as a young adult to help our growing rate of tragedy and hopelessness. When i was nominated and heard of the great things LLS is doing, i was honored to represent the organization and their patients. As a candidate i strive to raise money while touching the minds and hearts of the people donating and the people it is helping. i encourage you to donate whatever you can contribute to my efforts
We really are changing the face of blood cancer!
