As a community campaign leader I created a team (VisionDefined) and together we raised $10,000 in a 10-week long fundraising initiative. As you'll see in the slideshow - I did this while pregnant with my first child. :)
My goal was to lead by example, build community involvement and encourage people to give back and support those affected by blood cancer.
I believe to whom much is given, much is required. Giving back should be a common way of life for everyone.
This was also a practical way for me to memorialize my aunt, Renee who passed of leukemia. She was a beautiful person whom we all love dearly.
We can all make a difference when we work together.
I was privileged to serve as the first African American female to run in the MWOY Central Ohio Chapter
Here I am being
announced as a MWOY participant. During this gala event I was honored with the Community Achievement Award
Special thanks for all who supported my campaign!
Many LLS supported therapies not only help blood cancer patients, but are also now used to treat patients with rare forms of stomach and skin cancers and are in clinical trials for patients with lung, brain, breast, pancreatic and prostate cancers. And LLS funded drugs like targeted therapies and immunotherapies are now saving thousands of lives every day.
