Dear Friends and Family,

 

Our connection to blood cancer began when we were just three and a half years old and we met Ella Behnke playing CYO soccer. We met Ella just a year after she had been diagnosed with non-Hodgkin lymphoma. We became fast friends with Ella and her twin sister, Berkley and they are like our sisters to this day.  At our young age, we did not quite understand the seriousness of the situation and what Ella was going through.  As we have grown older, we now understand Ella’s strength and what she has overcome.

In 2016, we helped Ella run in the first ever Students of the Year campaign, for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, a nationwide competition where students are given the opportunity to raise money for blood cancer research. This year, in Ella’s honor, we are joining the Students of the Year competition and are asking for your help.

The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s mission is to cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and myeloma, and to improve the quality of life for patients and their families. LLS is at the forefront of the battle against blood cancers, already contributing $1.2 billion towards cutting edge research and technology that helps save countless of lives. Every single donation brings us one step closer to saving a life.

Please consider donating to our campaign. You can make your tax-deductible donation online through our fundraising page: https://events.lls.org/sctx/sanantoniosoy19/tdikin or if you prefer to mail your donation, please make your check payable to: The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and print “Team Dikin” in the “memo” section. The deadline for receiving donations is February 28, 2019.

 

                Thank you so much for any help you can give to Team Dikin!

 

                 Sincerely,

 

        Will Dikin
