I am honored to say that I am a candidate for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) “Man of the Year” campaign. I am writing today to ask for your support in my efforts to help LLS assist patients and families as they battle this disease.
In September of 1999, I was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Disease Stage IV B (Stage IV is the last stage of this cancer; B means with symptoms). I was treated, conventionally, with chemotherapy. For six months, I worked throughout my treatment. My family and wife, Zainab, helped take care of me during the treatment; including making meals, doing laundry, taking me to treatments and doctor’s appointments. My father and my grandmother lost their battle to cancer. For many years, I have committed my life to support others to overcome cancer using natural means and live in optimal health.
LLS is an organization that is doing the right things with the dollars it raises, and I’m proud to be associated with it.
This is where I sincerely need your help!
My campaign to be the “Man of the Year” is all about the much needed financial support for this great organization. Every dollar I raise is a vote for me, and a vote to support people with cancer. I am asking you today to join me in this ambitious campaign. For me, it is not about being “Man of the Year,” it is all about helping those in need of cancer support and care.
To make your tax-deductible donation, please go to http://www.mwoy.org/pages/pb/pbc16/tfisher and make your contribution to my page. All funds raised go to patient advocacy (helping people), not research. Fundraising ends May 13, 2016
As a special favor, I’d like to also ask you to reach out to others you know and ask them to do the same. I have found that so many of the people I talk to about my campaign have a connection to someone with blood cancer or another cancer, and want to support our efforts. Encourage people to support my campaign to conquer blood cancer.
As an added bonus, Brian Clement, our director at the Hippocrates Health Institute has generously offered to give a scholarship to someone with a blood cancer if I become the “Man of the Year.”
I will keep you informed of the campaign’s progress. Thank you in advance for your friendship and support.
