I am writing to request your help. I am honored to say that I have been nominated to raise funds for a worthy cause through The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) Man & Woman of the Year initiative. I gained my first exposure to LLS early in life, and again, within the last year. Shortly afterward, I quickly realized how many people in my life that have been affected by a blood cancer. As such, I am inspired to accept my LLS Woman of the Year nomination in honor of my loved ones.
Stage VI Lymphoma
I will be running for Woman of the Year in honor of:
1 ) My Grandfather, Jim Johnson, died at the age of 62 when I was a child of 10 years.
2 ) My dear friend, Stacy Holcroft, is my team’s Woman of Honor and Honorary Hero; she was recently diagnosed with Stage VI Lymphoma.
3 ) Veta, our sweet Girl of the Year, is scheduled to finish treatment next summer.
4 ) Beckett, our Boy of Year was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL), and is making tremendous improvements! He now has energy, has grown his hair back and is not at such a high risk for infection anymore. Go Beckett!
5 ) and last but not least, we are doing this for Madie's father. She is a wonderful woman who puts her heart and soul into LLS, fundraising to find the cure, and many charities.
These funds go directly to LLS in support of its longstanding mission to find a cure for blood cancers and improve the quality of life of patients and their families.
I’d like to remind you of a tough reality. Blood cancer does not discriminate. Specifically, leukemia still causes more deaths among children than any other cancer. However, I am encouraged by the amazing advancements being made and the unbelievable increase in survival rates. It is my goal to live in my lifetime in a world that is blood cancer and cancer free. Thanks to the efforts of organizations like LLS and their respective donors.

In addition, the breakthroughs in blood cancer research make a positive impact on the fight of other forms of cancer. With this key fact in mind, many more individuals have inspired me to embrace my nomination.
I’m very ambitious to raise as many funds as possible and spread awareness about blood cancer. I am writing today to ask for your support of my efforts to help LLS find a cure for blood cancers, and to assist patients, fathers, mothers, daughters, sons, children, and families as they battle this awful disease.
Blood cancer research is a gateway to helping many patients. As we learn more about different cancers, we are finding similarities. Many drugs developed by LLS for patients with a particular blood cancer can help more patients, including those with other cancers and serious non-malignant diseases. In fact 40% of the cancer drugs approved by the FDA last year came from blood cancer research.

More than 1 million Americans are living with blood cancers and every charitable dollar you contribute makes a difference. During this campaign from March 9th – May 19th. I am working towards raising $250,000. That number seems overwhelming, and it would not be possible to even target without the support of generous, community-minded donors, friends, and colleagues like you.
