Mita's LLS Fundraiser

Jan 07, 2022

I have signed up to save lives with the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) and am working to raise as much as possible over the next 7 weeks. Every dollar raised counts as one vote for our campaign. 

My story is simple. My nephew was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia at the age of 11. He is such a great kid. Always happy and has a passion for horseback riding. He's a total foodie and loves to bake cakes with his mom! After his diagnosis he had to undergo chemotherapy for more than 1 year. He's a survivor and I know how much this diagnosis has impacted everyone in the family. He can't wait to get back to horseback riding! 

                                                                                           
 
Many LLS-supported therapies not only help blood cancer patients but are also now used to treat patients with rare forms of stomach and skin cancers and are in clinical trials for patients with lung, brain, breast, pancreatic and prostate cancers. And LLS-funded drugs like targeted therapies and immunotherapies are now saving thousands of lives every day.
 
All donations are greatly appreciated and 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 website often and tell friends who would also like to donate!
 
On behalf of blood cancer patients everywhere, thank you for your support! For more information about LLS, please visit www.lls.org
