CANCER. Let that word resonate for a moment. Leukemia, Lymphoma, and Myeloma are blood cancers that do not discriminate. It takes lives and spares lives just the same.
Has there ever been a time in your life where you were called to step up for something that was bigger than yourself? Something that could touch the lives of everyone you know? This is not about me, but about the 1.2 million people who are battling blood cancers everyday.
