I was lucky enough to recently be invited to volunteer at The Rustic with Leukemia Texas. Everyone coordinating the event did a fabulous job getting the event set up and knowing what they needed from their volunteers. All of the patrons seemed to be having a wonderful time, and even people not involved with the Leukemia Texas event wanted to know all about what we were doing! It was easy to see Leukemia Texas is a fabulous organization with people working for them that truly care about the cause! I would be thrilled to volunteer with them again or attend an event as a guest!

I have volunteered with this wonderful organization for almost a decade. I have witnessed first had the impact it has had on real families dealing with this horrible disease. The staff spends an amazing amount if time forming relationships with the people that it helps. I believe that it is this focus on people over a cause( no matter how good a cause) separates Leukemia Texas and makes them a truly unique organization to work with.

I had a great first experience volunteering for Leukemia Texas at their fundraising event at The Rustic! It was nice to meet and greet people as they showed up for the event as well as answer questions from people unfamiliar with the charity that wanted to donate to a great cause. Will be happy to volunteer for them again anytime.

Our family has supported this Charity and its fundraisers for 8 years: my husband is a physician in Fort Worth Texas who treats patients with Cancer. Leukemia Texas provides funds for patient aid and for research: All of its fundraising profits remain in North Texas to help the people in need in our very own communities.
Over the years we have become volunteers with the BeatLeukemia Ball in Dallas and we Chaired its Inaugural Fort Worth Event last year. It was resounding success under the direction of its two leaders, who are truly remarkable and dedicated leaders. We were so impressed with Ms. O'Neill and Ms. Sis that we have decided to work with them again for the 2015 Ball to help the new committees ensure its success. We hope that one day no reuests for Patient Aid or for research grants will need to be turned away. Please help us all to raise funds with this wonderful organization.

Leukemia Texas is a wonderful organization whose mission and purpose is to help Leukemia patients and to fund research grants to help find a cure. I've been associated with the organization initially as a guest to one of the best fundraising events I've ever attended (The Beat Leukemia Ball), then after several years of seeing the good work they did I joined the Board to become more involved in furthering their cause. It is a very hands on organization that has impactful results on the patients they serve and I'm proud to be involved in the organization.

We raise money for patient aid and for research and all the money stays in Texas.
It is an honor and a priveledge to be on the board of this organization.

I've watched the Leukemia team put so much effort, time and energy into whatever they could do to assist the people in need of treatment. I am so impressed with their enthusiasm and stamina for all that they do for the public.

LeukemiaTexas is near and dear to my heart! My best friend was diagnosed with Leukemia in 2002 and I am blessed to have found this organization. You never know when you will be touched with Leukemia whether family ,friends or friends of friends. My first thought was how can i help her and others that are fighting. I have dedicated myself to finding a cure and to never stop believing. I chair the LeukemiaTexas Golf Tournament every year held in September to raise awareness and funds to help those in need. We raise money to offer personal financial assitance as well as money to find a cure. It is amazing how a little goes along way and i ask each person to donate what they can even if it is one dollar. Let us beat it together !!!

I have been involved with Leukemia Texas for over 10 years. Many of the board members have been involved much longer than I. I think we find it gratifying because 95% of our donations are local and we can touch and feel the progress that is being made against leukemia. We are an efficient , close to the vest organization and a lot of the actual volunteering is performed by the board members. I know from our association that we feel close to each other and to our commitment to cure leukemia. If someone is looking for a charity with little bureaucracy that really makes a difference , especially to leukemia research and patients locally, I would strongly recommend Leukemia Texas.
