The San Francisco Giants – Love For Landers Team Page!
Oct 13, 2011

These days, when you hear the words “San Francisco” and “Champion” in the same sentence … the 2010 World Champion San Francisco Giants probably comes to mind. But the word “Champion” is elevated to a whole new level when you hear about the journey of our beloved Giants co-worker and dear friend Patrick Landers.


It all began in January of this year, with what seemed to be a bad cold or flu. Next thing you know, Patrick – a devoted husband and father of two - was in the ICU on a ventilator with multi-system organ failure. After a plethora of tests he was finally diagnosed with a specific type of Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma. He has undergone several extreme and intensive treatments over the past nine months and continues to bravely battle through the fight of his life.


Thanks to an innovative medical therapy developed through research funded in part by the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS), Patrick is now gaining more strength and energy each and every day. The goal is to get Patrick well enough so that he can successfully undergo a bone marrow transplant in the coming weeks. This will prove to be mentally and physically challenging for both Patrick and his family.


Nonetheless, the amount of perseverance and courage that Patrick has demonstrated through these most difficult times is astounding. For anyone who’s ever had the pleasure of meeting Patrick, there is absolutely no doubt that you too have been touched by his selfless, caring heart and humor in some way or another.


In honor of Patrick, and thousands like him, we ... his co-workers, his friends, and his family ... are joining together to participate in the Light The Night Walk on October 20th.


Join our team! This is a kid friendly (and dog friendly too!) leisurely walk beginning and ending in Union Square - an evening full of hope and inspiration. We want our Love For Landers team to be the largest, most successful fundraising team in San Francisco! As a symbol of endurance and strength our team is committed to raising $60,000to support the extraordinary efforts of the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.


Come walk with Patrick and his GIANT family and help us bring light to the

dark world of cancer.


If you are unable to join us on October 20th, please consider making a contribution to our team. Your contribution of any size can and will MAKE A DIFFERENCE.


Your donation is 100% Tax Deductible. Many, many thanks for your generosity and support.
