Every three minutes someone is diagnosed with a blood cancer and every ten minutes someone dies from that same disease. The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) Midwest Chapter is dedicated to finding a cure for leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and myeloma in efforts to improve the quality of life of the more than 3,800 local children and adults that are diagnosed each year. The great news is that the LLS Midwest Chapter has awarded more than $2.1 million in research grants in Missouri programs currently working to find cures. Thanks to research and access to better treatments, survival rates for many patients have doubled, tripled and even quadrupled since 1960.

On behalf of the, Rob has accepted the nomination be a candidate for their Man & Woman of the Year fundraising campaign, which runs from March 5 through May 14. We are proud to support Rob with his goal of raising more than $50,000 for this campaign!

Please consider a donation to the LLS. Your support will promote continued research, patient assistance, support systems, and ultimately help find a cure. You can donate online, here.
