It's Easier Than You Think!
Making an Impact... It's easier than you think!
Aim to recruit 10 Walkers.
Each of your Walkers can set their goal for at least $100. (That's asking 10 people for $10!)
1 Team with 10 Walkers each asking 10 Donors for $10 = $1,000 Raised!
Raising Funds Online? It?s easier than you think!
"Gimme 5" Campaign: Try this on facebook, Myspace & twitter:
1. Gimme 5 minutes of your time: Go to my personal LTN website (insert fundraising link), and read about what I'm doing.
2. Gimme 5 bucks: Just donate online--five dollars for a great cause, and if you want to donate more, fantastic!
3. Gimme 5 friends: Pass the word to five friends and help spread the word!
5 is the number of years that some blood cancer patients have to stay in remission in order to be considered cured.
Every 5 minutes someone new is diagnosed with a blood cancer - money for research is desperately needed - so PLEASE donate now.
$5 can get you a latte at Starbucks but to see how $5 makes an impact on cancer patients:
If 2 people gimme 5....
$10 provides two hours of microscope use to determine if a new medicine will stop a life-threatening lung infection in a bone marrow transplant patient.
$20 pays for a bottle of nutrients that will nourish 10 million leukemia cells grown in the laboratory for a week, enabling scientists to test whether a new anti-cancer drug halts their growth.
$40 purchases enough razor-sharp blades to prepare bone-marrow biopsy samples from 200 patients, enabling doctors to make accurate cancer diagnoses.
$100 pays for the cost of an antibody used to determine the precise characteristics of lymphoma cells, allowing doctors to determine the best treatment for a patient.
$250 buys an instrument to measure tiny volumes of liquid, which allows scientists to accurately measure the solutions needed to prepare a patient sample for a diagnostic test.
$500 purchases 10 hours of time on a flow cytometer, a machine that reveals a multitude of characteristics of blood cancer cells that could be developed into effective diagnostic tests.
As I work tirelessly to outrun/walk cancer, please step up and stand with me. See more of the amazing things The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society does with your donation at www.lls.org . Thank you for your support!
