About once a year I get to create a special film for a cause that is meaningful to me – gratis. Sometimes I find the organization and sometimes they find me. It feels so good to be able to make some kind of contribution and give back somehow to organizations and people in my community. This time they found me. Most of us have been touched by cancer in some way, I lost my Dad to lung cancer six years ago and know quite a few who have fought Leukemia and Lymphoma. When Heather called me with this project, I knew I had to do it. We created these two films to share at the 25th Anniversary Ball to raise money for research for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. So much is happening with new drugs and treatments and it is making a difference in so many lives. They raised over one MILLION dollars on Saturday night.
I am so proud to help share the voices of some of the survivors who are alive because of the research being done in Kansas City. Each of them has such an amazing story to tell and are such strong and beautiful individuals.
