I am honored and thrilled to announce that I have been selected as a candidate for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Man & Woman of the Year national fundraising campaign. This campaign is comprised of a roster of incredible men and women who are also competing for the title of Man & Woman of the Year. I am proud to be a nominee for the Texas Gulf Coast Chapter this year. The efforts of this national campaign focus on raising funds, awareness, and advocacy in the fight against blood cancers such as leukemia, lymphoma and myeloma. When I accepted the nomination to run for Woman of the Year, I was asked if I knew anyone whose life had been directly impacted by leukemia or lymphoma. In that moment, I couldn’t think of anyone. As time passed, the names became too many to count. Numerous conversations with friends, family, and patients would somehow detour into a personal story of tragedy or victory over cancer. I truly believe that life puts us in certain situations for a reason and I am beyond thankful for this opportunity. It has already opened my eyes to so much and enabled me to see beyond my own hardships. I now have the chance to fight the battle of cancer alongside every victim and their families. I pray that there is a day when a cure replaces all suffering. Let’s band together and help make this dream a reality. With your generous support, you can help me surpass my goal of $100,000 and together we can provide new hope in finding a cure for blood cancers. Please strongly consider making a donation directly to LLS, in support of my team over the 10 week period. This campaign begins on March 26th and will conclude on June 5th.
