Facial Plastic Surgery Associates Dr Angela Sturm is Woman of the Year Candidate for The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society

At Facial Plastic Surgery Associates we believe in uplifting our patients and our community. Our Associate, Dr. Angela Sturm, is a Leukemia and Lymphoma Woman of the Year Candidate helping to raise funds for research for a cure and support for patients and their families. Please support Dr. Sturm and this amazing organization by making contributions online or in our office.

Dear Family and Friends,
In the US, nearly 1.1 million people are living with, or are in remission from leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s lymphoma, NHL or myeloma. Someone is diagnosed every 4 minutes and loses their life every 10 minutes to these diseases. Therefore, blood cancers touch just about all of us, our family or our friends. The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society funds research for cures, as well as for helping patients and families through treatment. This is an organization that is doing the right things with the dollars it raises; therefore I am proud to be a candidate of James Ryan, an Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL) survivor. James was diagnosed at only 13 months old in 2007. After nearly 3 years of treatment, he finished chemotherapy in September of 2010. James was declared cancer free in September of 2015! He loves to play sports, particularly soccer and basketball. He also loves writing and playing with Legos. James is the older brother to Adrianne and Rachel. LLS not only works hard to find a cure for kids like James, but helped his family with financial aid during his treatment.

I ask you to join me today in the campaign to end cancer. We have a short 10 weeks, March 20 through May 30, 2014, to raise as much money as possible for people like James. The focus of the campaign is not about being Woman of the Year; it is about funding critical research and aiding families with things as simple, but impactful as parking costs during treatment.

Please send your tax-deductible contribution via my contribution page

As a special favor, I’d like to also ask you to reach out to others you know and ask them to do the same. Many people have a connection to blood cancer and want to support our efforts.

Thank you in advance for your friendship and support.

Sincerely,
Angela Sturm, MD
