So Alison tweeted this out earlier today:

Quote from: alisonhaislip
Lymphoma is affecting my family right now so I'm joining the fight to kick cancer's ass.

Please consider donating.

http://www.mwoy.org/pages/calso/los17/ahaislip

If you click on the link, you'll be taken to Alison's Fundraising page for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society's Man & Woman of the Year Fundraising Campaign. While I can't do justice to summarizing the entire event, I think Alison does a succinct job in her own words about what her personal reasons are for participating in this campaign, particularly how cancer has affected her family's life:

When my dear friend, Jonathan Gabay, asked me to join his team to help raise over $100,000 in a 10-week period for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) during the Man or Woman of the Year fundraising campaign, I didn't think twice before saying yes. Obviously any chance we have to do good in this world should be jumped at, but the timing of this opportunity was impeccable:

 

Jonathan asked me just a few weeks after I found out my uncle was diagnosed with Stage 4 Hodgkins Lymphoma.

 

Thankfully, at the time of writing this, my uncle is responding positively to his chemo treatment so my family is staying hopeful. But there are many out there who are struggling or who have loved ones struggling who are not getting these kind of results.

 

We all know cancer sucks in epic proportions. We probably all know someone or have been personally affected by cancer. What you may NOT know is that research for blood cancers (like Leukemia and Lymphoma) actually help out research for many other cancers. 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.

 

So let's help kick cancer's ass, shall we?



Listen, I know that money is a bit tight for some of us - I speak from personal experience in saying that on more than one occasion I've had to go spelunking in my car, looking for enough change to afford a breakfast sandwich that'll tide me over till I can get back from work in the evening. That being said, when I have cash, when I have the chance, I still plan on tossing in some money and supporting Alison in this fundraiser. Believe me, it won't be much, and it definitely won't be in the amount of ANY of the preset donation amounts on the site - but $5 or $10, or even just a couple of bucks would be helpful! Like I said, it won't be for much because I can't afford to spare alot, but there's some time between now and when this campaign ends, and that's a few paydays in-between for me....so I might be able to save up a little here and there, not much, but it'll be at least something that I can toss Alison's way.

And for those of you who do donate, and for whom this may matter - your donations are tax deductible! For this forthcoming tax year (of course) but definitely something to keep in mind!

The Fundraising Campaign runs till Saturday, June 10, 2017 - 6pm PST.

If you do want to donate - go to the linked page above, click on the donate button and either select the amount you want to donate from the presets, or (if you're like me) click on "Other" and fill in the amount. You can set it up so that it's a one-time donation, a monthly donation, a donation in someone's memory, and pay for it either by credit card or Paypal.

Anyway, go - give the page a look over, see a picture of Alison's uncle, and if you want to donate - donate! And if you don't, that's fine too. Either way, think about sharing this page with others, letting them know what they can do to help fight Cancer!

Well....that's all I gotta say.
Later folks!

I was named #MWOYLA Team Member of the Year for raising the most money during this campaign for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I wouldn't have been able to do any of this without all of you. Seriously. The support you've given has moved me to tears and I will be thinking about you every time I look at this beautiful paperweight. #MWOY #SomedayIsToday https://www.instagram.com/p/BVL9cV4B7Jj/
