Update on Man & Woman of the Year Campaign

Rajinder Dua held a fundraiser at Bin38 last night for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.  It was a great turnout.  By far the most touching part of the evening was when Geoff Meisner and Tina Saladino shared their experiences dealing with blood cancer.  I don’t think it’s my place to retell their experiences here, but needless to say it was heart wrenching and a true testament to the human spirit.  If you have time, please watch a brief documentary called Project Michelle.  It chronicles her struggle with cancer and efforts to help locate bone marrow donors for her and other cancer patients.

Listening to the speakers last night and watching the documentary got me thinking.  So far I have rasied $11,355, $2555 through my website and the rest in checks sitting on my dresser at home. I applaud everyone for donating, but it’s not nearly enough.  The cost of going through treatments is so expensive, and not to mention invasive, that $11k will not go very far.  Monte Carlo Night at City Hall on May 14th will do very well, I’m expecting that we’ll be able to raise upwards of $80K, but I also want to work hard to get donations through the site.  I can’t stress enough how great of an organization LLS is and how important of a cause they support.  Please donate today!
