Not even a week into campaigning and I’ve already had the pleasure of meeting some incredible Leukemia & Lymphoma Society supporters! More importantly in talking (excessively), emailing and tweeting about this project I’ve taken on, I’ve met survivors, whether it’s a child who doesn’t remember what they’ve endured, an affected teenager, a widow or family member of a lost loved one or a friend that just never mentioned, “this one time I survived cancer”, they are really making this worth it.
The ultimate goal is to raise much money as possible for research for a cure, but in talking to my mom and reflecting on Thursday’s kick off, I have another goal.
Hey 80s babies, what do you know about Leukemia or Lymphoma? Not much…? And what philanthropy? Ya know, a little love for our fellow humans? I do know you know about networking and hustle. We are the kids that graduated college and the economy went to hell.
My additional goal is to represent us and bring awareness to you, use you. We make it work right? We had to. So maybe you can only donate $20, I know you know someone who can afford more and I know you’d be surprised at just how many people you personally know have been effected by blood cancer or any cancer for that matter.
Hey guys – we know people! And I have news, sometime soon your best friend, your sibling or even you might start a family. Did you know Leukemia is the most common cancer in children under the age of 20?! Yea, I didn’t know either until last week.
So do me a favor, let’s show up. Donate as a member of our generation.
Everyone else – I’d love your support too! Click the image to see where you can donate!
