Dixie McCurley, Stephen Gross, & Lee Baynes have decided to participate in The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) Man & Woman of the Year campaign to support one of our clients (Cale Robert Hall of Creative Approach) and help put an end to blood cancer. Here’s a word from him.
“While I am an entrepreneur by profession, the truth is I am a southern boy with a heart bigger than granny’s pound cake. To me, my success has meant that I could give back to those who need it most through philanthropy. However, I gotta come clean and tell you that I have a vendetta this time with my LLS campaign: I am also a cancer survivor. Today, it has been almost 8 years since my last chemo treatment. I am forever grateful to the support and care that I received, but others are not as lucky, especially children with leukemia. I want to bring the hope I feel to others to inspire them to become survivors. Please join me on this journey with LLS to raise money, awareness and hope for those currently battling cancer. Your donation will support the LLS mission to cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodkin’s disease and myeloma, and improve the quality of life of patients and their families.” – Cale Robert Hall
Over the next 10 weeks, we will be helping Cale by raising money to fund therapies that save the lives of blood cancer patients every day.
About The Society
The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society has invested more than $1 billion in blood cancer research and has funded some extremely promising treatments that provide more options and hope for blood cancer patients. In 2017 alone, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved 18 treatment options for blood cancer patients who urgently need them. LLS played a vital role by investing in 15 of those newly approved treatments.
Our Fundraising Mission
But we are not finished yet. Now more than ever, we need more treatments and options for patients. We’re asking you to help by making a tax-deductible contribution TODAY so we can continue to support blood cancer patients!
With your help, we look forward to the promise of more treatments and cures for cancer patients in 2018.
