Supporting Ainsley’s Mission for LLS
Posted on May 7, 2019 by Lisa
KeyBridge employees declared WAR! A WAR to fight blood cancers! A PENNY WAR!! Teams were chosen, battle lines were drawn and the competition was fierce – sometimes downright sneaky! Our fantastic employees emptied their pockets and cleaned out their cars; bringing in coins of all colors to support Ainsley’s mission to help raise funds for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS).
We were thrilled to have so many participate enabling us to present Ainsley a big fat check for $663.
Ainsley knows all too well what blood cancer patients go through. In April of 2018, Ainsley was diagnosed with stage-4 Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. She completed 6 months of rigorous treatment when she lost all of her hair. However, with support and great strength, Ainsley went into remission just as she was learning of LLS and everything for which the organization stands.
The mission of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society is to cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease, and myeloma, and to improve the quality of life for patients and their families. They exist to find cures and ensure access to treatments for blood cancer patients.
Ainsley was chosen to participate in the LLS 2019 Students of the Year program; a seven-week initiative in which select high school students from around the country participate in a fundraising competition to benefit LLS. Each dollar is a vote in Ainsley’s mission to become Student of the Year for the Toledo District.
