Conquering Leukemia . . . We Can . . . I Can

Conquering Leukemia is more than just the name of our organization; it’s a mindset. Founded in early 2019 in Atlanta Georgia, we are a family-run chapter of the consecutive 4 Star charity ratings from Charity Navigator Leukemia Research Foundation, dedicated to increasing awareness and cancer research efforts in the southeastern United States. To date, the Leukemia Research Foundation has raised over $80 million in support of blood cancer research. With our initiative, we plan to not only add to that number, but also add to the ever growing community of individuals and organizations acting in support of new and alternative treatments for blood cancers.

A New Year - Save the Date - September 5th, 2020

With the New Year in full swing, we here at Conquering Leukemia are also going full steam ahead in planning the successor to our inaugural “Vegas Casino Night” Gala Event. As such, consider this a formal notice to our Leukemia Research Foundation family, to “save the date!” of September 5th, 2020. Plan for another fun filled evening of drinks, (legal) gambling, and most importantly, fellowship and positive collaboration toward this cause to which we are blessed to contribute. Aside from the Gala Event date, we have a scheduled meeting with Cancer Treatment Centers of America in Newnan, GA, to discuss a partnership/joint effort opportunity between their facility and our chapter. This meeting will discuss the potential creation of a joint team comprised of members from both organizations on a mission to increase awareness through working directly with survivors, new patients, and the families of those affected by blood cancer. This meeting will be held on February 13th, 2020, with updates and details to follow!

Thanks to everyone who has shown us a warm welcome in joining the LRF family, and we will be sure to keep in touch with news and updates as soon as they develop!

Sincerely,

Richard Denney
Director, Conquering Leukemia Chapter
