2022 Long Island Honored Heroes

Every year the candidates participating in our Man & Woman of the Year campaign raise funds in honor of two local blood cancer survivors, our Honored Heroes. Candidates and team members' time and efforts will help our honored heroes and thousands of children and adults in their fight against blood cancers.

Please welcome our Long Island Man & Woman of the Year Honored Heroes, Aiden, and Reese!

Aiden is a dynamic seven-year-old from Rockville Centre. He was diagnosed with B Cell AcuteLymphoblastic Leukemia when he was 2.5 years old. He underwent three years of treatment and is now in remission. Aiden loves trains, Legos, and riding his bike. His favorite treats are Oreos and chocolate-covered pretzels. He just started second grade with his twin brother, Mason!

Reese is an adventurous six-year-old from Dix Hills. This past April she was diagnosed with B Cell AcuteLymphoblastic Leukemia. Reese maintains a positive attitude as she continues treatment and has a heart of gold. She has two siblings, loves animals, art, dance, and playing video games. Her favorite treats are donuts and ice cream!

Aiden and Reese are so excited to be our Honored Heroes. We're so lucky to partner with them and their amazing families!
