Joe Francisco '01 has been named a candidate for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Man & Woman of the Year national fundraising campaign. There are 73 national campaigns comprised of incredible men and women who are competing for the title of Man & Woman of the Year. This national campaign focuses on raising funds, awareness, and advocacy in the fight against blood cancers such as leukemia, lymphoma and myeloma.
"It's such a great honor to have been nominated as a
candidate in the 4th largest city in America," stated Francisco. "Each
and every one of us
know someone who is affected by a debilitating disease, cancer, or
other life changing event. I challenge the Bethany community to join
me on my two month journey to raise funds and awareness for the
Leukemia and Lymphoma Society."
The goal of the national campaign, which kicked
off on March 29 and runs for 9 weeks, is to raise as much money as
possible to help find a cure for blood cancer and to help improve the
lives of blood cancer patients and their families.
