Founding Team Member
It was both an honor and a privilege to have been asked to run for Man of the Year for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) back in 2015. My Team, Coast to Coast Cures was created to raise money for the research, patient services, and advocacy work of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, and is deeply inspired by the story of a little girl named Amber. I was first introduced to Amber by a client and friend, Natalie Fernandez. Amber is her niece, a spunky, beautiful child from Tucson, Arizona. Amber was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML) at the age of 7. AML is a devastating form of childhood cancer, and if it weren’t for a bone marrow transplant donated by her little brother Benjamin, she may not have won her fight. In the 5 years since Amber has been in remission, she and her family have not stopped working to raise money for cancer research. Research that they – more than most – understand is LIFE-SAVINGI In 2016, with the help of my good friend Preston Clarke and during his own run for Man of the Year, we decided to convert Coast to Coast Cures into a Legacy Team with the ambitious goal of raising $1,000,000 by 2025. I am elated to report that we have raised nearly $250,000 in our first two years as partners in this worthy endeavor. I remain confident that together, we can make a HUGE impact on the cancer community for Amber, and others like her around the world. Will you join our Fight???
