"It is something that will change you. It is something that will give you purpose. It is something that you will look back on in your life and say, 'I made a difference.'"
The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) Man & Woman of the Year campaign is a 10-week philanthropic competition for leaders in local communities across the United States.
