EDG President Raises Funds for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society
Jeff Danberry, President of Excelsior Design Group, has accepted his nomination to run for Man of the Year through the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) annual fundraising campaign, Man and Woman of the Year (MWOY). The MWOY campaign is an exciting competition in which candidates raise money to earn “Man & Woman of the Year” titles by raising funds for LLS blood cancer research. The candidates compete in honor of children who are local blood cancer survivors, the Boy & Girl of the Year.
Every dollar raised counts as one vote and the titles are awarded to the man and woman with the most votes at the end of ten weeks. The top local fundraisers in the country win the national titles. To date, these dedicated leaders have helped LLS invest more than $1 billion in research to advance breakthrough therapies that are saving lives today and helping us all achieve the LLS goal of a world without blood cancers.
Jeff’s eldest daughter, Lyndsey, was diagnosed with Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia in 1994; she was 10 years old at the time. Fortunately, Lyndsey beat her battle but the fight to cure blood cancer is not over. “That’s why I am here, ” declares Jeff.
