We’re beyond excited to announce that one of our own, Devon Dennis, was nominated for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Women of the Year!

“The Man & Woman of the Year (MWOY) campaign is a spirited fundraising competition in communities across the U.S. in which participants build fundraising teams to compete for the title of Man or Woman of the Year. They raise funds for LLS blood cancer research in honor of local children who are blood cancer survivors, the Boy & Girl of the Year. The titles are awarded to the man and woman in each community who raises the most funds during the ten-week campaign; the top local fundraisers in the country also win the national titles. You can support their efforts by donating to or joining their campaigns, because everyone wins when cancer loses!”

Devon is running on Team Peaceful Warrior in honor of her father, John Dennis, who lost his battle with Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma on December 31, 2014 at the age of 52.

“I am on an impassioned mission to raise awareness for blood cancers. We can help LLS improve the quality of life for patients on their healing journeys, and someday, find a cure, so that families of the future will not have to endure the pain that my family and too many other families have had to experience. ” – Devon Dennis

Throughout the month, Devon has coordinated a variety of events designed at raising money for this great organization and we’d love to see you there!
