Throughout the month of May, there will be campaigning to raise money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. Leukemia is the leading cause of death of children by cancer.
Over 900,000 cases exist in the U.S. today. Lymphoma cases are growing at a rate of 4% each year. The Society has made significant progress in the last 25 years specifically targeting blood cancer research. Unfortunately, over half the people diagnosed with blood cancer today, will not be alive in 5 years.
Help make a difference by donating to this cause. Please visit the donation page here: click here
Please act soon. The fundraising campaign culminates with a Grand Finale Celebration on June 8, 2007 at the Hyatt Pier 66 in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
