Our Mission - Where The Money Goes

With our inaugural event last year we were able to donate over $4,000 to The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society! Our goal is to double that amount this year. Below you'll see a sampling of how your donations and sponsorships help with Patient Care & Education and with the mission to cure blood cancers:

$1000 supports one week’s salary for a medical researcher at UCSF, Stanford, or Berkeley who may discover key information to developing curative treatments for blood cancers.
$500 allows 10 patients to log on to a webcast and hear the latest information in treatment for their disease.
$150 allows five patients to make a First Connection with a trained peer volunteer.
$100 provides three patients access to an information teleconference.
$75 is the average cost of tissue typing to become a bone marrow donor.
$50 is the cost of a CT scan.
$40 is the cost of sending a comprehensive packet of information for children with cancer.
$35 pays for transportation expenses for a patient living in Northern California’s most rural areas to treatment at a comprehensive cancer center.

$25 covers a single prescription co-payment.

$5 is the cost of sending a newly diagnosed patient information about their disease and how to get support.

Support our mission today by sponsoring or by registering for this event!
