Cancer is a leading cause of death worldwide, with more and more people losing their battles with cancer each year. The many challenges in the health sector, from lack of funding to scarce medical equipment, have made the fight against cancer even more difficult, which has been frustrating to all.
However, with organizations like the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, we can say not all hope is lost. The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) has made it its mission to help cure leukemia, lymphoma, and Hodgkin’s lymphoma and improve the quality of life for patients and their families by giving them emotional and financial support.
LLS has yearly campaigns where you get to nominate a candidate for a ten-week fundraising drive with all the money going to support those struggling with blood cancer. This year, one of their nominees for the man and woman of the year campaign is a celebrated press and digital marketing expert, Jeff Krammer.
Jeff is the founder and CEO of Distinguished Agency. According to Jeff, the nomination has come at the perfect time. He notes that this is something he has always wanted to do, and being among the list of nominees this year, his goal is to help raise as much money as possible and educate society about cancer, more so blood cancer.
“People who have cancer often don’t have someone by their side, which can be mentally draining,” says Jeff. It is also challenging to raise money for chemotherapy and other medications, which burden people who are not from financially stable backgrounds. Jeff says their collaboration with the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society is aimed to help every blood cancer patient and facilitate research.
Together with his team at Distinguished Agency, they have made this their fight with everyone playing a role. Distinguished Agency is educating the people of South Florida and beyond on how you can prevent blood cancer and encouraging patients and their families.
Jeff calls upon anyone interested in joining the fight and helping LLS finish strong. He is using his experience and the network that he has built over the years to be a source of inspiration to those struggling with blood cancer while also encouraging others to join in and give a hand.
Jeff has always loved giving back to the community by participating in different charity campaigns held in South Florida. He recently took part in the Froggy’s Drive for Research Golf Tournament held in St. Augustine, with a portion of the proceeds going towards the Brain Aneurysm Foundation. He says that with the man and woman of the year coming up, this is an opportunity to spread even more awareness of the diseases as they help fund the research with their ten-week campaign drive.
While we do not have a cure for cancer yet, there is still hope, especially with more and more people joining in on the fight. If you want to get involved, too, you can contact Jeff Krammer at [email protected]
