The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society's Woman of the Year

One of our good friends (and this sweet kiddo's Mom,) Anna Donlon, is nominated for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Woman of the Year award because of all her hard work and dedication supporting cancer research. There are only 3 days left to contribute to her team's campaign and if you can donate anything to support this important research, please do! Check out her incredibly intelligent and giving daughter's reasons for wanting to help and donate here ---> {fundraising page} My wife and I will be at the Gala this weekend supporting Anna, (it sounds very fancy typing the word gala- btw,) and I'll be taking photos for the LLS while my wife mingles and looks adorable.

Here is some info from the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society website:

"LLS has invested more than $1 billion in research since our inception. Over that time, survival rates for many blood cancer patients have doubled, tripled and even quadrupled. Moreover, we have learned how to cure certain blood cancers. And many therapies first approved for blood cancers are now helping patients with other types of cancers and serious diseases.

But more than one-third of blood cancer patients still do not survive five years after their diagnosis. So more funding is needed to advance more research and to ensure access to treatments to help save more lives."
