Thursday night we went to support my adorable friend Katie, who is running for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Woman of the Year.
Besides getting to look at the fabulous clothes and drinking free champagne in Saks, the parents of the Boy & Girl of the Year spoke, and all of the Man & Woman of the Year candidates were announced. Katie of course got the most cheers! When the parents spoke about their journeys with their children and how the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society has helped them, it really tugged at my heart, and I teared up (along with all of the other women in the room). Help Katie help those affected by blood cancer by donating here.
I stole the below from Katie’s page:
The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s mission is to cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and myeloma, and to improve the quality of life of patients and their families. Leukemia causes more deaths than any other cancer among children under the age of 20. Of 39 new drugs approved by the FDA in the last decade, almost half (19) were approved as treatments for blood cancer and all 19 are currently being tested for other forms of cancer and diseases, such as arthritis. LLS played a vital role in the research and development of these drugs.
You can donate now here. Remember, every little bit helps!
