Find Kelli A Cure

and Jerry too!

The Kelli's Heroes team will be walking on Friday, April 17, 2015 at Northview High School in Dothan, Alabama to help raise money to find a cure for my wonder daughter Kelli Douglas Hernandez who has Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma. Although Kelli has benefited from research funded by the LLS, this campaign is not just for Kelli but for her family and the LLS. There are other wonderful families who are dealing with blood cancers!  I invite you to join our team and come walk with us for this worthy cause.  You can join by clicking the Team Page link to the right, navigate to the bottom of the team page, and click the 'Join' button.

My good friend and fellow golfer, Jerry Hardy, found out in early June 2013 that he has Acute myeloid leukemia (AML). Jerry and I go way back to our school days. We've had many a good time over the years and I want more good times ahead so I'm walking for him too!

 

Give up a week or two of going to Starbucks, seeing a movie (who needs to see a lot of sex, violence and obscene language), smoking (good for your own health), drinking alcohol (ok, just one a day), or eating at a fast food place (lose a few pounds) to free up a few bucks to contribute to this worthly cause. I exceeded my goal last year so I've upped this years goal! Don't let Kelli or Jerry down! DIG! :)

Light The Night Walk is The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's annual fundraising walk to pay tribute and bring hope to people battling cancer. Hundreds of thousands of participants raise funds for lifesaving research and patient services.

 

For more than 60 years, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) has been solely focused on people with blood cancers. Presently, we have more than $250 million committed to research across the United States and in ten other countries. Every dollar is provided by concerned donors. We invest in the best, outcome based science:

  • Anywhere, with no geographic or institutional boundaries
  • Without profit incentive
  • To meet unmet Medicare needs of people with blood cancers
 

And LLS funded advances are helping patients beyond those for whom they were originally developed, including people with solid tumors and auto-immune diseases. In the past decade, nearly 50% (19 out of 39) of the cancer drugs approved by the FDA were approved as treatments for blood cancer patients. Twelve are already approved for people beyond those for whom they were first developed. With your help, we are saving lives.

  • A donation of $30 provides patients and their loved ones with FREE booklets that contain up-to-date information on their disease and help them make informed decisions about their treatment options.
  • A donation of $50 makes possible a Family Support group with a trained facilitator where comfort can be found and experiences can be shared among patients and family members.
  • A donation of $100 helps supply laboratory researchers with supplies and materials critical to carrying out their search for cures.
  • A donation of $1,000 makes possible one- on-one conversations with health care specialists who provide patients with information about their disease, treatment options, and helps prepare them with questions for their health care team.
 

Please make a donation to support my participation in the Light The Night Walk and help save lives. Be sure to check my Web site frequently to see my progress, and thanks for your support!

    "I love my daughter for her strength in the face of her Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma adversity; for the love that she shows to her husband, her children, her extended family and her friends; for the compassion that she shows to those who have illness and diseases; and for her dedication to the LLS through her efforts in fundraising and leadership. She is the type of person we need in this world. "
