The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society Presents Visionaries of the Year

For more than 30 years, Man & Woman of the Year has been a philanthropic staple, with a group of highly motivated individuals in communities across the U.S. leading the way in the fight against blood cancer

As LLS evolves for the future, we are thrilled to recognize our volunteers for being what we need most--Visionaries--and are doing so with a new name for this campaign. Beginning this year, Man & Woman of the Year will become Visionaries of the Year to honor the vision our dedicated leaders bring to creating a better world. 

Candidates will continue to form powerful fundraising teams and compete in honor of two local blood cancer survivors. The individual who has raised the most funds during the ten-week campaign is awarded the prestigious title of 'Visionary of the Year' in their community.
