The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, Cleveland Chapter has nominated two candidates for their endeavors to be the Man and Woman of the year. Gary Wenner has his sights on being Man of the Year. Heidi Cooper is a candidate for Woman of the Year. Both of their focus is to raise awareness in the community through the need for fundraising. These candidates are raising funds to facilitate patients with access to getting treatments, medications, housing, and transportation to and from medical appointments, as well as counseling to assist in enhancing the quality of their journey.
In this episode of Connections Cleveland, we spoke to Andrea Greif, Senior Director, Communications of the LLS about the education, family assistance, and donation processes that go along with patients that have been diagnosed with a blood cancer.
