BENEFITING: The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society
I had the pleasure of going on a 4,300 mile solo bike tour to support the Leukemia and Lymphoma society. The Leukemia and Lymphoma society utilizes an amazing staff to support cutting edge research in the cancer field. Almost 1.7 million people will be diagnosed with cancer this year alone. Nearly 40% of the population will be diagnosed with cancer at some point in their lifetime. Not only is the disease extremely prevalent in our society, but it's also just an evil disease. It hijacks the body's cells and wrests away control of cellular pathways. The disease then methodically accumulates mutations that make it an unstoppable and mobile force. However, new research in chemo and immuno therapy have promising new leads.
In short, here's why you should donate: the L&L society funds vital research that may hold the key to ending our struggle with the disease that has claimed millions of lives.
Thanks for visiting the fundraiser!
