Join me tonight as I help my friend Ashley Erling raise awareness for #LLS.
Each year, in communities across the country, passionate candidates engage in an exciting competition to earn The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) “Man & Woman of the Year” titles by raising funds for LLS blood cancer research. My friend Ashley has partnered with the Rhode Island chapter this year to raise money and awareness as best as she can as one of the candidates this year… I have always loved to follow and donate this worthy cause because it’s doing so much good for so many people.
The candidates compete in honor of children who are local blood cancer survivors, the Boy & Girl of the Year.
Every dollar counts as one vote and the titles are awarded to the man and woman with the most votes at the end of ten weeks. The top local fundraisers in the country win the national titles. To date, these dedicated leaders have helped LLS invest more than $1 billion in research to advance breakthrough therapies that are saving lives today and helping us all achieve the LLS goal of a world without blood cancers.
The funds raised through Man & Woman of the Year are used in many ways:
- The continuing research and development of breakthrough therapies.
- Free blood cancer information, education and support.
- To support patients in their communities through our 61 chapters across the U.S. and Canada.
- To drive policies that accelerate the development and approval of new treatments.
- To advocate for blood cancer survivors and their families, helping patients navigate their cancer treatments and ensuring that they have access to quality, affordable and coordinated care.
Ashley reached out to me to help her cohost a Twitter Party tonight to really get out there via social media and bring awareness. I was honored she asked me to help her out with this!
