Calling on our Cisco family to help support an amazing opportunity to assist more than one million Americans living with blood cancers. The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) has nominated our own, Tina Swallow as a candidate in the “Man & Woman of the Year” fundraising campaign. We have a small team working to raise as much money as possible in a 10-week period for LLS. We have from May 7, 2020 - July 18, 2020, to meet our goals! Every dollar raised counts as one vote and the candidate who gets the most votes (raises the most money) is named the Man or Woman of the Year. This year, the National Capital Area (NCA) chapter of LLS selected 26 candidates to reach its fundraising goal of $3.5 million.
I know these are unprecedented times and COVID-19 is changing the world at a rapid pace. Times are hard, there are fears and a lot of unknowns. In these challenging times, there is one thing we do know – Every 3 minutes someone is diagnosed with blood cancer and the COVID-19 crisis does nothing to change that fact. In addition to a grueling battle against cancer, patients are now faced with the threat of a virus that could put them at further risk, as well as the possibility of delays in treatment, as hospitals face maximum capacity.
This campaign is very personal to Tina. Her oldest son Beau was diagnosed with Stage 4 cancer at age 12 and was given a 5-7% chance of surviving past treatment. After 23 rounds of chemo, an 8-hour surgery and 6-weeks of radiation, Beau found the strength to persevere. Visit www.bridgetoacure.com to read more about her story.
