Every year, the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society runs a friendly fundraising competition across the US in which participants vie for the title of Man & Woman of the Year. Candidates raise funds for blood cancer research in honor of local children who are blood cancer survivors, the Boy & Girl of the Year-because everyone wins when cancer loses. The titles are awarded to the men and women in each community who raise the most funds during the ten-week campaign; the top local fundraisers in the country also win the national titles. You can aid in their efforts by donating to or joining their campaigns not someday, but today. What can YOU do in 10 weeks?
