Spreading the word

Coming up in two weeks is an event to raise awareness about the work of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS). LLS is a national voluntary health agency dedicated to curing leukemia, lymphoma and myeloma, and to improving the quality of life of patients and their families.

LLS supports the following major programs: research, patient services, public and professional education, advocacy and community services. And, while my sister-in-law Peggy (who is 73 days post-transplant as of today due to acute myelogenous leukemia) has not received services from the group as far as I know, its work is something I feel I should support in her honor.

Goodies For Mom is sponsoring a Blogging For Blood Cancer event the second week in August. If you feel this is something you'd like to support, donate to, or blog about, stop by their bloggy home and do some reading about your choices.
