CURE CANCER
The fight against cancer continues today.  Each of us has a connection to someone who has battled this terrible disease.  It’s time we find a cure, let that time to be now.  Coast to Coast Cures is a group created to support fundraising for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society through their annual Man & Woman of the Year Fundraising Campaign.

WHY YOU SHOULD SUPPORT THE LLS

The mission of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) is to: cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and myeloma, and improve the quality of life of patients and their families.
Blood Cancer is the #3 Killer

Only lung and gastrointestinal cancers take more lives in the US each year. But, less than 1 in 10 new cancer diagnoses will be a blood cancer. And, there are many rare sub-types of leukemia’s, lymphomas and myelomas. Without donations from people like you, research into treatments would not be possible.

Leukemia is Most Common in Children

Since LLS began investing in research in 1949, the 5-year survival rate for children with acute lymphoblastic leukemia has improved from 5% to approximately 90%. Despite this improvement, leukemia causes more deaths than any other cancer among children, adolescents, and young adults.

LLS Research Has Been Utilized For Many Types of Cancers

Approximately 40% of new cancer therapies approved by the FDA between 2000 and 2017 were first approved for blood cancer patients and many are now helping patients with other serious diseases.  25% of more than 900 new cancer treatments in clinical testing by companies (as of June 2012) were first tested as treatments for blood cancer patients. These treatments include Chemotherapy, Bone Marrow Transplants, Molecular Targeting, and the first-ever FDA approved gene-therapy (Car-T).

Invest in Finding Cures

The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) is the largest voluntary cancer research agency specifically focused on finding cures and better treatments for blood cancer patients. With the scope and scale to fund many projects at the same time, LLS supports hundreds of cancer scientists around the world and was  the first-ever non-profit to be awarded a Master Trial (Beat-AML).

Research Depends on You

Unlike commercial enterprises that consider blood cancers as “orphan diseases” with small markets and limited profit potential, LLS funds research based on medical need without regard to commercial return or market size. Every dollar invested comes from charitable support from concerned donors.

Extend Your Reach

LLS funds hundreds of promising researchers at leading cancer centers and universities worldwide. And since LLS has no campus or laboratories to maintain, your investment funds more research and less overhead than a donation made elsewhere.

HELP US FUND THE FIGHT AGAINST CANCER
Our Goal is to raise $100,000 annually.

ABOUT THE LLS MAN & WOMAN OF THE YEAR

The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) Man & Woman of the Year campaign is a 10-week philanthropic competition for leaders in local communities across the United States.

Candidates and their teammates raise funds for LLS in honor of local blood cancer survivors, the Boy & Girl of the Year. The title “Man or Woman of the Year” is awarded to the candidate whose team raises the most funds during the competition. The top man & woman candidate in the country are awarded with the national title.

Chloe Fox, Nolan Field, Zannah Quayle

2022 Student of the Year Candidate's

Nolan Field is a sophomore at Arcadia High School. He loves wrestling, jiujitsu, and his dog. He is running for Students of the Year because it allows him to fight for other people, not just himself.

Chloe Fox is a sophomore at Xavier College Preparatory. She loves to play tennis and spend time with family. Chloe is running for Students of the Year because she has personally witnessed the extent to which cancer can affect a family. She runs in hopes that no family will have to go through what hers has experienced.

Zannah Quayle is a junior at Veritas Preparatory Academy. She loves playing lacrosse and being with family and friends. Zannah is running for the Students of the Year campaign because her uncle had childhood leukemia and she wants to make sure no other child has to go through what her uncle did. She also wants to help millions of cancer patients and their family’s beat cancer and thrive in their life after.

Collectively, they are running to show their community, and the whole nation the influence a few teenagers can have on the world and the fight against Cancer.
