Leukemia & Lymphoma Society Fundrasing

My friend Courtney is one of the nominee's taking part in the Man and Woman of the Year fundraising event for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.

A few years ago, my mom won her battle against stage 4 lymphoma only to find out she would shortly after be diagnosed with another form of Lymphoma called Cutaneous T-cell Lymphoma (CTCL).

On top of the medications, my mom sits at the hospital 2 days in a row, once a month, for hours, cleaning her blood of this awful disease.  There is no cure for this.  There is only a way to contain it.  It takes away the awful itching and scabbing and other side effects on the outside due to the disease inside.

Courtney, among others, is raising money for research grants for different blood cancers.  Although this money may not go directly to a research grant for the type of cancer my mom suffers from, each dollar will be going towards grants for blood cancers that effect families the way that mine has been.
Please help by spreading the word and taking a moment to donate HERE.  Every dollar counts in our efforts to cure these awful diseases that have hurt so many.
