Fall 2012 Newsletter

 

I have just celebrated 10 years since my stem cell transplant and 14 years as a cancer survivor. I have thanked my donor in Texas, my doctor at Dana Farber and my family for helping me reach this milestone. It is because of their combined generosity, knowledge, and support that I can celebrate this 10th birthday.  I also have had the great joy of becoming a grandparent. The gift of time that can be spent with my 4 precious grandkids (with one on the way) are reminders of how lucky I have been to have received such great care. There are so many that have not been as fortunate that we must continue to help find new medicine and help those struggling emotionally, physically and financially with these diseases."

A Sample of the Families YOU Have Helped

A 35 year old man is being treated for leukemia after having recently been treated for another cancer. The patient, who has a wife and two children, lives outside of Massachusetts and has to travel hours each way to Boston for his treatment. The patient is trying to work as much as possible as finances are very tight for his family, however it is very difficult for him to do so because of his condition. With the help of the Stop Leukemia Patient Assistance fund, this patient receives assistance to cover the cost of a hotel room when he is feeling too sick after his treatment to drive back to his home and needs to spend the night in Boston to rest. Read about more families.

 

Fundraising Update

We would like to thank everyone for their support and generosity over the past 3+ years.  With your help, we have raised over $30,000 and have donated $22,500 to the Office of Patient and Family Assistance at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.  Other significant donations have been made to the Andrew Sarkisian Memorial Scholarship Fund.  With your continued support, many more families will receive much needed financial assistance.  A friendly reminder that all donations are tax deductible as StopLeukemia is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization.  Donate now.

Happy New Year from StopLeukemia.org

Dear StopLeukemia Supporters

 From all of us at Stopleukemia, we would like to thank you for all of your support in 2011.  We also want to wish you and your families a healthy and prosperous new year! 

2011 was another exciting step forward for the organization.  One major highlight our official partnership with The Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.  As many of you know, Fred Schneider, Sandy Richton, and Andrew Sarkisian were all treated at Dana Farber.  This amazing hospital has had a tremendous impact on all of us and we have been proud to donate the majority of our proceeds to the Office of Patient and Family Assistance; and now to be an official partner with them.

Our annual fundraising event took place in November at the Hard Rock Cafe in Boston.  It was a huge success raising close to $9,000!  Over 150 people attended and helped celebrate the lives of loved ones afflicted with leukemia. 

During 2011, we also revamped our website, continued to sell t-shirts, and made a number of donations including  Dana Farber Office of Patient and Family Assistance, The Andrew Sarksian Memorial Scholarship Fund, and the Fort Lauderdale Light-the-Night event. 

We know the turbulent economy has created challenging times for many of you, so we cannot thank you enough for your continued support in these tough times.  For those who would like to get in end of year donations it is not too late so visit us at www.stopleukemia.org to donate, order t-shirts, and sign up for the donor registry.  

Happy New Year!

Your friends at StopLeukemia.
