No Sophomore Slump

17 May

I was thrilled today to mail off my annual donation to both the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society  and the NHL’s Hockey Fights Cancer. It is always gratifying to support these two organizations that provide such excellent services and support to patients and their families. When I first created “The Year My Dad Went Bald” I wanted to be able to give back to those who helped me in my fight against cancer. Since I self-published the book, I am able to share a portion of my sales with these organizations. I am especially thrilled since the donations this year were three times the amount of last years donations, meaning we had a really good year getting The Year My Dad Went Bald out to the people who it might help. I grateful to all those who played at part in this very successful year, including the James Cancer Center at Ohio State, the Central Chapter Ohio of the LLS, Camp Kesem and Genentech, Inc. which has been a great supporter of the book.


Creating a community

Among all the great work they do, the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society plays a huge role in creating a community for those whose lives have been affected by these diseases. Many of the blogs features survivor stories as well as fundraising events. The Year My Went Bald is featured in a guest blog this week. Check out all the blogs for some great information and inspirational stories.
