The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society Presents

Man & Woman of the Year

Man & Woman of the Year is philanthropic competition to support blood cancer research among a group of motivated and dedicated individuals in communities across the United States. Candidates form powerful fundraising teams and compete in honor of two local children who are blood cancer survivors.
The man and woman who have raised the most funds during the ten-week campaign are awarded the prestigious title of Man or Woman of the Year in their community. The man and woman who have raised the most across the entire US will be recognized as the national Man & Woman of the Year.
This year the Fresno campaign kicks off on February 13th and will culminate with a Grand Finale celebration on April 26th. For more information regarding event details, sponsorship or to join a candidate’s team, please email Nicala.Allen@lls.org. We hope you will join us in this fight against cancer!

Meet Our 2019 Girl Of The Year

On October 14, 2013 our lives changed. The signs were there, I kept taking her to the Doctor’s office weekly, I was desperate trying to figure out what was wrong with her.
