I am proud to act as Chairman for the 2017 Leukemia Cup Inshore Slam Charity Fishing Tournament which benefits The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.  I have an incredible committee of volunteers that is working to make this year's event even better than last year and we hope you will join us for an amazing weekend of events.

I first got involved with the Georgia Chapter of LLS after my wife was diagnosed with CML Leukemia approximately 5 yeras ago, at the age of 28.  We were happily married, had just opened our own small business, moved to Savannah, and were looking to start our family when a routine doctor visit revealed that Bethany had Leukemia.  She is alive today and has been in remission for almost 4 years now due to the funding and research efforts of previous LLS donors.  The daily chemo pill that saved her life was approved by the FDA in 2006 thanks to research funded by LLS.

Amazing breakthroughs are happening in blood cancer treatments, and the successed with blood cancer research are proving to be extremly successful in other cancer research as well.  We are obviously deeply interested in doing everything we can to support LLS and the lifesaving research they help fund.  On behalf of blood cancer patients everywhere, thank you for your continued support!  I'm looking forward to another incredbile event and look forward to seeing you in September!
