Seamus Heffernan | Heffernan Heroes


Mar 13, 2021

Hello Friend!

On behalf of the amazing team of Heffernan's Heroes, we wanted you all to know that we not only surpassed our goal of $15,000, but we almost doubled it!   It has been a remarkable journey - filled with many wonderfull connections to real stories, real tears, real celebrations of all that is good in people.  Thank you for your generosity and support of our team and blood cancer research! This campaign truly made a difference.  The Milwaukee area teams together combined to raise more that $633,000, which is a testimony to how committed young people can create positive change in our world.  It is truly AMAZING to think about that and we know that you were a part of that grand total. 

                         THANK YOU from the bottom of our hearts. 

This site will be open for anyone else who wants to share a donation until June, so feel free to pass that along.  Until then, stay safe and hope we can share in the victory sometime soon in person :)

Seamus's Students of the Year Fundraiser

Thank you for visiting my fundraising page, welcome!

I encourage you to join me in supporting The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) by making a donation to my fundraising campaign. By donating to LLS, you support the many facets of LLS’s mission work from investing in groundbreaking research, providing education and support to patients, and advocating at the state and federal level for legislation to help those living with cancer. My appreciation for your support cannot be overstated — each and every dollar donated to LLS brings us closer to our goal to end blood cancer and makes an impact for cancer patients and their families.

As a global leader in the fight to end cancer, LLS is committed to doing more for blood cancer patients and families than any organization in the world. LLS’s signature fundraising campaigns drive critical support for its mission, including a nearly $1.3 billion investment in cutting edge cancer research worldwide since it was founded in 1949. Since the 1960s, survival rates for many blood cancer patients have doubled, tripled, or even quadrupled.

Every facet of LLS’s mission – research, education and support, and policy and advocacy – work in harmony to put blood cancer patients and their families first. LLS has helped millions impacted by cancer throughout its more than 70-year history, even funding breakthrough blood cancer research to advance lifesaving treatments and cures that is now helping patients with other cancers and diseases. That is why at LLS we say that beating cancer is in our blood.

Please visit my website as often as you can and share it with everyone you know who would also like to join us in the fight against cancer. Together, we have the power, the passion and the resolve to achieve a world without blood cancer. All donations are tax-deductible.

On behalf of cancer patients and their families everywhere, I sincerely thank you for your support!
