Welcome To Staying PCRU's Fundraising Page
Please join us in supporting The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) by making a donation to our fundraising campaign. Thanks to your support, our efforts, will help fund the therapies and treatments and help save lives today. One member of our team, Sharon, has been supported by, and fundraising for, LLS for almost 10 years. Every encounter that she has had with them has been supportive, informative and friendly.
Our team name, Staying PCRU, was chosen because Sharon has a PCR blood test run every 6 months and we are happy to see when the report comes back PCRU - showing that the Gleevec is working and the cancer is Undetectable. We are positively looking forward that she will stay Undetectable, or at least the cancer will be undetectable (not her personally).
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 druges are now being tested for patients with other non-cancerous diseases like Diabetes, Rheumatoid Arthritis and Multiple Sclerosis. The drug, Gleevec, that Sharon takes was developed with LLS assistance.
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 our team, and blood cancer patients everywhere, we thank you for your support!
