Leukemia & Lymphoma Societyʼs “Girl of the Year”.

Each year, in communities across the country, dedicated candidates engage in an exciting competition to earn The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's (LLS) "Man & Woman of the Year" titles. Raising funds for LLS blood cancer research the candidates compete in honor of children who are local blood cancer survivors, the Boy & Girl of the Year.

Every dollar raised counts as one vote and the titles are awarded to the man and woman with the most votes at the end of 10 weeks. Top local fundraisers become eligible to win the national titles. The campaign runs between February and June, check with your local chapter for specific dates.

Final candidates are chosen from those nominated, and then form their own teams and use their contacts and creativity to raise funds. Every candidate and each of their team members will get their own personalized fundraising webpage to reach out to friends and contacts. Chapter staff will assist candidates in goal planning and serve as fundraising consultants.

The campaign also includes events and parties that allow candidates to meet their fellow candidates and other local business figures.

Kennedy was chosen as our 2017 Girl of the Year! She is an 18 year old senior at Teurlings Catholic High School. Kennedy was the picture of health before she was diagnosed with ALCL in October 2015 at the age of 17. Kennedy and her family were fortunate to be able to stay here in Lafayette for their treatment, under the care of Dr. Morad at Women’s & Children’s Hospital.

Kennedy is currently in remission and is back to cheerleading, and was recently chosen for Teurlings’ Homecoming Court!

We are proud to have Kennedy as our Honored Hero for 2017!
