Please consider making a donation- everybit helps! Or let a team member know if you'd like to donate giftcards or other raffle basket items!

Meet our Honored Hero!
This year, we are raising funds in honor of Jane, a local blood cancer survivor. On October 9, 2015 Jane woke up with a lump on her neck that continued to grow through out the day. Later, an x-ray showed that she had a mass and was diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma. She was rushed to the Cleveland Clinic where she immediatly started chemo. Despite a relapse, fertility treatment, radiation and a stem cell transplant, Jane has been in remission since December 2016!
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.
Like The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, we believe that beating cancer is in our blood. Cancer is a bully, but we are not afraid to stand up and fight. We invite you to stand with us and join our fight! Our mission is to not only raise the most money but also to bring attention to blood cancers like leukemia, which is the most common form of cancer in children and teens.
Together, we really are changing the face of blood cancer!
All donations are greatly appreciated and are tax deductible. They'll not only support LLS-funded research but will help provide critical information and support for patients, and support advocacy for laws to ensure patients can access the care and treatments they need.
Please visit our website often and bring friends who would also like to donate!
