Man & Woman of the Year: New Orleans

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 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 the Greater New Orleans region. The man and woman who have raised the most across the entire US will be recognized as the National Man or Woman of the Year.


The 2020 Man & Woman of the Year Campaign is underway from

April 2nd - June 11th, 2020.

Q: How is LLS handling upcoming events and patient education programs such as Blood Cancer Conferences?

A: The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) continues to monitor coronavirus (COVID-19) developments. As a health organization, one of our highest priorities is the well-being of our employees, volunteers, donors, partners, and the patients we serve—especially as many blood cancer patients are immunocompromised.

Given the escalating cases of coronavirus COVID-19 and concern among our staff and communities across the country, LLS is postponing our in-person fundraising events scheduled through April 30 and postponing in-person events for patients, caregivers, and healthcare professionals through May 15. Our staff will be working from home until March 31. When possible, we will provide virtual opportunities to continue to drive forward our important mission work. The June 11th Grand Finale is still slated to be held at the WWII Museum.

We are following vigilantly guidance from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the World Health Organization (WHO), and local public health officials as we continue to evaluate our plans and act in a timely and responsible way.
