Leukemia & Lymphoma Society: Team Bleeding Orange
The mission of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) is: Cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin's disease and myeloma, and improve the quality of life of patients and their families.
Every year LLS puts on the Man and Woman of the Year campaign. The MWOY campaign is a fundraising competition among individuals in the community who, through their participation vie for the honor of being the Man or Woman of the Year.
Monika Sola was inspired to run for Woman of the Year with the support of her team Bleeding Orange when her close friend, 24 year-old Ashton Wright, was diagnosed with stage 4 Lymphoma back in November 2010. Monika is dedicating her campaign to Ashton's fight.
