Welcome to my personal fundraising page for Man & Woman of the Year.
I have joined a cause that is driven to stand up for the blood cancer community, and help end blood cancers. Over the next 10 weeks, I am striving to raise the most amount of money for this cause that is very close to my heart. If I raise the most money, I will be honored with the official title of Woman of the Year!
As you know, though, everyone wins when cancer loses.
I do have a personal attachment to LLSC, my father has battled Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma twice in his lifetime now. I’m happy to say that he beat it both times, but certainly not without a fight and the help of LLSC. The first time he was diagnosed was 15 years ago, when he was 42 years old, he went into remission for 13 years. Life breezed by, we enjoyed every moment and built beautiful memories. In March 2019, after what seemed like a regular check-up, his doctor announced his cancer had relapsed. My father had another fight in front of him, we could not believe it. It was a very difficult time for my family and I. He went through an aggressive chemotherapy treatment and successfully completed a stem cell transplant. Today we can say that he is in remission and that he has won his battle again! My family and I could not be happier and more grateful. He is back to his happy, positive and joyful self.
By contributing to this cause, it allows me to feel that I am making a difference for my family and for others who have had similar experiences. What an honor it is to be nominated for this cause. What a serendipitous way the universe has shown me how to take my fear and transform it into hope. Please join me in making a difference!
