Jackson Lewis - Greenville, SC

Welcome to our Team's Homepage
Feb 25, 2014

 

Jackson Lewis has partnered with the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Light The Night Walk in a firm-wide fundraising effort that will culminate in our own June Weekend Light the Night® Walk on Friday, June 27.

 

"As a blood cancer survivor and past chair of the LLS National Board, you can imagine the passion I have for this group and its mission. Indeed, after the "war on cancer" and billions of dollars, only one cancer has been cured —and LLS was at the forefront finding that cure. Brian Druker in Portland developed a drug with considerable assistance from the Society when no one else would pay him any attention. Now, CML (Chronic Meyologenous Leukemia) patients take Gleevec every day with very few side effects and live long productive lives. Sadly, despite advances like this, someone still dies of a blood cancer every ten minutes. LLS, through basic research and venture philanthropy, continues the search for cures. For current patients, LLS gave over $50 Million last year to assist defraying co-pay costs for chemotherapy. 75 cents of every dollar spent LLS raises goes directly toward these "mission" activities. In other words, any dollars you raise will have an immediate impact finding cures and improving lives. I'm lucky to be around because of LLS, and I’m grateful every day that I get to tell people I work with Jackson Lewis. " (Scott Carroll, Cincinnati Office Managing Shareholder)

 

As part of our commitment to advancing LLS’s good works, we are initiating a firm-wide fundraising contest, using a per-attorney average, to see which region can raise the most money for the organization before June 27.

 

All of the offices within the Jackson Lewis region that raises the most money (calculated using a per-attorney average) will receive a pizza party on the date of their choice, paid for by the firm. In addition, the #1 top performing office will receive a perpetual trophy at June Weekend to honor that office’s commitment to the LLS cause.

 

Donations raised by our team will help fund:

  • Life saving blood cancer treatments
  • Comprehensive, personalize assistance through the LLS Information Resource Center
  • Free educational materials and events
  • Programs such as: Patti Robinson Kaufmann First Connection Program and family support groups
  • Advocacy for better treatments and healthcare reform
