The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's (LLS) Man & Woman of the Year campaign is a national 10-week campaign to raise funds to help find cures for blood cancers. The campaign includes individuals in the community who conduct their own fundraising campaigns to help LLS fund blood cancer research and provide education and support for patients and their families. Elisabeth King, a nurse practitioner with Texas Oncology in Austin and a Woman of the Year nominee, sees the importance of LLS's services each day. Elisabeth is participating in LLS Woman of the year to honor her patients and in memory of her best friend's mother, Ms. Effie Gilder, who lost her courageous battle with chronic lymphocytic leukemia last summer.
