I was just nominated Woman of the Year for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society for 2011!! Two people who are totally unrelated were the ones who nominated. http://www.mwoy.org/what/campaign/
The money raised between the 10 week campaign will go to help fund researchers and advance the mission of the society, Cure the disease!! We will be campaigning on behalf of two children who have gone through the chemo process due to having leukemia. I can't imagine as a parent hearing the words that your child has cancer. This is a wonderful organization and any dollar I can raise will help.
I will be getting a special website hosted by the LLS where people can go directly to donate. My goal is to raise $25,000. I'll let you know the web address when it's up and running so get your wallets ready!!
We had a gathering at Crave in Golden Valley where we got to meet others participating as well as past winners. I also got to advertise the pageant system and my platform. Anywhere is a good place to talk to parents about Internet safety!!
