Last year my brother in law, Howard, was diagnosed with Leukemia. With the help of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) and an amazing team of doctors, Howard is now in remission. I have been nominated by LLS as a candidate for the Fort Lauderdale Man & Woman of the Year 2018 campaign. The Man & Woman of the Year campaign brings together influential and compassionate leaders in the community to raise critical funds for blood cancer research, advocacy and patient care. Each year candidates form teams made up of friends, family, and colleagues to compete in their local community for the title of Man or Woman of the Year. Everyone wins when cancer loses, and I am asking for you to join me in this fight.
From April 4 to June 9, I will be leading one of the fundraising teams in our community in an effort to support lifesaving blood cancer research. If my team raises the most funds, I will be named the Fort Lauderdale Woman of the Year.
