I've been involved with this wonderful charity for almost 5 years. Their mission to find a cure for childhood cancer is one that I can stand behind and that I'm happy to fund. I love the work this charity does for Children's Hospital of Michigan and the people on the board, the volunteers and the general members. I can't say enough about the work they do.

I came from Florida to attend LRL's Evening of Hope event this year. What a wonderful night. I was able to meet with the very doctors doing the actual cancer research and also met some of the childhood cancer survivors that are aligned with this charity. A very emotional and touching experience to say the least. I love this organization and will continue to support it in the future.

I had a great time at the incredible Evening of Hope event - my first event with this organization. The company I work for sponsors this charity and our President is also the President of this organization. Hearing the speeches from the wonderful doctors at Children's Hospital was so inspiring - and hearing the stories from the kids who survived cancer was incredibly emotional and touching. I love what this charity is doing and plan on continuing to contribute tho their cause.

My company is a sponsor of this wonderful organization. We are so pleased to be able to help fund research for finding a cure for childhood cancers. I have met many of the amazing volunteers and board members and just wish I could do more to help them - what a great mission - the eradication of childhood cancer! My greatest wish is that they are able to fulfill this mission.

What better cause than finding a cure for childhood cancer? As a nurse and volunteer myself I see far too many children suffering with life-threatening illnesses. I love LRL's mission to eradicate pediatric cancers. My brother sits on the board of directors and I know first-hand what an excellent organization this is. I'm proud to be able to donate to LRL.

Attending the Jack Zaffarno Golf Outing, a fundraising event for Leukemia Research Life, was my first experience in attending a charity event. Upon arrival, I was moved by the number of people. As i began mingling, one thing became apparent and that was everyone's passion for the cause. I am not a golfer so i rode the golf cart with other atendees and took pictures. One might not think I relish going to a golf tournament when I don't golf, but I thoroughly enjoyed the experience due, in part, to the volunteer's attentiveness, thoughtfullness, and diligence. It was also great entertainment watching participants play golf and socialize. It touched my heart to witness cash recipient winners give their winnings back to Leukemia Research Life. The food was delicious. In fact, every aspect of the event was well-planned, extremely organized, and deligthful. The most important thing that I took with me from this event is the conveyed, impassioned belief of an ardent supporter of Leukemia Research Life: " One day children will no longer die of leukemia."
