Hi friends…this is a cause that is close to my ♥️ and I would like to share what I have been up to.
In June of 2020, at six-years old, my niece Penelope was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (known as ALL). To say this was a punch in the gut is an understatement.
As we all know someone whose life has been touched by Cancer, the effects of this diagnosis and what comes after are emotionally and physically exhausting for patients and their families.
Thankfully, Penelope now seven, is in her maintenance phase of treatment. This still entails two+ years of intense medications, treatments, and let’s not forget, side effects. That being said, she is doing great and being a kid! That is all we can keep praying for ???? .
I have been nominated by a friend of my sister’s family, for something called ‘Man/Woman Of The Year Campaign’ for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS).
Over the next ten-weeks, my team and I are fundraising as much as we can to support in the fight against Cancer, specifically Blood Cancer. All proceeds go to LLS in a mission for further research, less intense yet effective treatments, and ultimately a CURE FOR CANCER!
The goal is to to eventually crush Cancer!
BEATING CANCER IS IN OUR BLOOD!
For all of those and their families who are fighting, have fought, and will fight this disease…this is for you.
If you would like to see more about this campaign, or to support LLS and its mission in any way, and also to see more about Penelope from diagnosis, through treatments and now, here are the links.
Many of you have emailed me to ask about Penelope, and from the bottom of my and my families heart, THANK YOU! All of the prayers and good vibes are felt and appreciated more than you can ever know!
*One last thing: if you know of a company or organization that would like to or are willing to sponsor LLS, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will connect them directly with LLS.
