Each year launches a , and My team #KickingItWithLily raised over $171,000, received a Community Volunteerism Award and two research grants (Pediatric Cancer & Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia) in Lily's name.

I have had at least five family members pass from cancers; one not making it past the age of 40 and have personally witnessed my mom battle through thyroid cancer. I wanted to get behind a reputable organization that helps fund cures for all cancers; not just one. Nearly HALF of all cancer treatments approved by the FDA were funded in part by LLS. 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 to name a few. LLS-funded drugs are now being tested for patients with other non-cancerous diseases like Diabetes, Rheumatoid Arthritis and Multiple Sclerosis. LLS-funded drugs like targeted therapies and immunotherapies are now saving thousands of lives every day.
None of this would be possible without individuals like you who have helped lead the way to making someday, today.
