My Why

I am beyond honored to have accepted the nomination to compete in the 2018 Woman of the Year Campaign for the The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS)! An amazing opportunity for a truly wonderful cause. Throughout this journey, I have a team of All-Stars that are campaigning with me. A team comprised of colleagues, friends, family — believers.

And now I’m asking YOU to believe. I have until June 20, 2018 to raise as much money possible in honor of Ava (pictured here with me) & Bennett – two brave young cancer survivors from New Jersey.

I hope that my participation will encourage others to help make a difference by making a donation to my fundraising campaign for 2018 Woman of the Year. Every dollar I raise counts as one vote, and the candidate who gets the most votes by raising the most money is named the Man or Woman of the Year.

Over the years, support from people like you has been responsible for the blood cancer advancements that turned a 5% survival rate into a 91% survival rate. Many LLS supported therapies not only help blood cancer patients, but are also now used to treat patients with rare forms of stomach and skin cancers and are in clinical trials for patients with lung, brain, breast, pancreatic and prostate cancers. And LLS funded drugs like targeted therapies and immunotherapies are now saving thousands of lives every day.

Thanks to your support, my efforts will help fund the therapies and treatments that save lives, not someday but today. I’d like to invite you to believe and join in my journey.
