Welcome to my Fundraising Page!

The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) funds the research and development of therapies that save thousands of lives every day. Two examples are targeted therapies that seek out cancer cells and kill them, and the use of a patient's own immune system to kill cancer. The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Light The Night Walk helps fund research and also supports people battling cancer. Their mission is to cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and myeloma and improve the quality of life for patients and their families.

As a clinical researcher I see firsthand the data on oncology patients. I review their ages, their life expectancies, and sometimes their reasons for missed clinical study visits, such as taking a final vacation with their families. All patients seem to want is more time with their families. Some of us have lost loved ones of our own to cancer. Even though we can’t get time back with those we’ve lost, wouldn’t it be a great gift to help provide more time to other patients and families who are suffering, or otherwise provide support to patients who are struggling to get through their treatment regimens?

I know I have likely asked many of you for money before for one cause or another. It’s what I do, and I appreciate your past efforts if you have made them. I have a loftier goal this time. I am aiming to raise a minimum of $1000 before my team joins a Light the Night walk in October. If everyone contributes just a little, we can make a BIG difference!

Please make a donation and check my Web site frequently to see my progress.

Thank you for bringing us all closer to living in a world without blood cancers!
