Leukemia and Lymphona fundraiser

sulkaBrannon Sulka is representing Bluffton and Hilton Head in the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) Man and Women on the Year 2018 Competition.  The event runs through April 13.  Brannon’s inspiration is her grandmother who was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma at age 82. Blood cancers are the third leading cancer killer of Americans. LLS’s mission is to  “Cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and myeloma, and improve the quality of life of patients and their families.” 

The nonprofit has contributed more than $1 billion to cancer research, and recently jumpstarted an initiative to create breakthroughs in the treatment of acute myeloid leukemia.  In addition, LLS has provided over $240 million to support eligible blood cancer patient’s health insurance premiums and drug co-pays.
