03 Mar 2015 Man & Woman of the Year
As Michael Knapp’s sister, we were both raised with a desire and a drive to take care of those in need. Sometimes we could help by sharing our peanut butter and jelly sandwich at school with a friend who forgot their lunch, sometimes it was helping out a stray animal, sometimes it was helping a friend move, or giving money to a struggling performing musician, other times it was as simple as supporting a person in need. So when I was Nominated to run for the 2015 Man & Woman of the Year, a fundraising campaign benefiting the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, I knew I was ready help! The mission of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) is to cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease, and myeloma, and improve the quality of life for patients and their families in the areas of research and patient services.
As a member of Avamere, a healthcare organization based in Wilsonville, Oregon, I witness every day the impact an unexpected diagnosis has on our patients and families. As a mother of two amazing girls, I am touched by the stories of courage from the young boys, girls and families affected by blood cancers. I am grateful for the opportunity to raise awareness and financial support.
Your donation will sustain ongoing research to find a cure for blood cancers and provided the much needed support to local families as they fight the fight of a lifetime. New therapies cannot become realities without the funding support of organizations like LLS. Despite great advances in the treatment of blood cancers, diseases such as leukemia and lymphoma remain largely incurable. That can change with us!
My campaign to be the Woman of the Year is all about dollars raised. Every dollar I raise is a vote for me and a vote to cure cancer.
I am asking you today to join me in this ambitious campaign. We have until May 7, 2015 to reach our fundraising goal.
You can go to the campaign website and make your contribution to join me in this campaign:www.mwoy.org/pages/oswim/oswim15/lsienkiewi
Thank you for your generous support of the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, a non-profit organization committed to giving life to those who have, are, and will fight the tough challenges of cancer. Every dollar donated brings us one step closer to a world without blood cancers.
