Every 90 minutes someone in Michigan is told they have blood cancer, which equates to 6,000 new diagnoses in the state each year. Whether it’s an adult or a child, a diagnosis of lymphoma, leukemia, multiple myeloma or any other blood-related disease creates a sudden, seismic shift in the course of one’s life. And not just the patient’s – the impact is felt by the entire family.
By fundraising for The Blood Cancer Foundation of Michigan (BCFM), you’re elevating patients’ and families’ abilities to cope and heal throughout their experiences with blood cancer.
Whether you organize a 5k walk/run or a birthday fundraiser, you’re helping us provide each individual that turns to us with the support, resources, and information they need to sustain themselves – emotionally and practically – from diagnosis, through treatment and beyond. Every dollar you raise makes an IMMEDIATE difference in the lives of patients and families affected by blood cancer!
