Leslie Wright – Candidate for Woman of the Year 2010!

Leslie Wright - Candidate for Woman of the Year 2010!

This is Kate Hansen. She was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia in April of 2007. Today she’s a survivor at 7 years old because of the research enabled by generous donations given to find a cure for blood cancers. Leslie Wright, Vice President of Resource, is privileged to be a candidate for this cause in her honor.

A month ago Leslie accepted an invitation from a great friend to become a candidate for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) Man & Woman of the Year campaign. The significance it’s had on her life is hard to describe – She’s discovered how many people she knows who’ve been affected by blood cancers. But new research protocols enabled by fundraising dollars are literally saving lives on a daily basis.  Even the smallest contribution can make a big difference.

Did you know?

  • Every 4 minutes someone new is diagnosed
  • Every 10 minutes someone loses the battle against blood cancer
  • Leukemia is the #1 cancer among children

This campaign to be Woman of the Year is all about dollars raised. Every dollar donated is a vote for Leslie, but much more significantly a vote to cure cancer.

Please join Resource in supporting Leslie with this ambitious effort.  She has until June 17th, the Grand Finale, to raise her goal of $15,000. It’s a big number, but there are so many different ways you can help:
