Liz’s Army 

Stafford Hills Club Member, Liz Lofurno, was diagnosed with Stage Four Classical Hodgkins Lymphoma in September 2015. Liz went through five chemo cycles from September to December 2015. Liz’s Army has a goal to raise enough money by May 14th that can link the team name for cancer research, specifically for the trial Liz participated in, the brentuximab trial, which saved her life.

“Being a close friend of Liz, I watched her go through every stage of her cancer: diagnosis, treatment, and now thankfully, remission. Liz was diagnosed with stage four Hodgkin’s Lymphoma in September of 2015. Almost immediately, her support system grew drastically and eventually gained the name “Liz’s Army”. We supported her, but she was the real fighter. I watched as the beautiful hair on her head, eyelashes, and eyebrows disappeared. She spent her 16th birthday in the hospital, receiving chemo. Nobody, much less a child, should ever have to go through what Liz went through. Thanks to incredibly generous donations to blood cancer research and the endless support from people just like you, treatments were available and Liz went into remission in early January of 2016. Now, she can continue through her teenage years of playing lacrosse and enjoying life like she should.” – Riley Murphy

The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society 

The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS) is the world’s largest voluntary health organization dedicated to blood cancer research, education, and patient services. LLS’s mission is to cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease, and myeloma, and improve the quality of life of patients and their families. Since the first funding in 1954, LLS has awarded more than $680 million in research funding.

What your donation will do:

  • Encourage scientists to pursue blood cancer research. Grants to young scientists help grow research talent even as federal research funding becomes increasingly limited.
  • Develop “targeted therapies” that kill cancer cells selectively. By hitting specific molecular targets, these treatments don’t harm patients’ healthy cells, resulting in fewer dangerous side effects.
  • Test immunotherapies. Immunotherapies strengthen a patient’s own immune system so it can better fight infections and attack cancer cells, reducing the need for damaging chemotherapy.
  • Improve the safety of today’s cures. LLS funds research to predict, manage and prevent complications in patients most at risk for long-term and late effects of treatment.
  • Help patients and their families make informed decisions. LLS supplies information and counseling to help guide patients through their cancer journey and access current treatment and clinical trial options.
  • Offer community services. Among the wide array of programs LLS provides are those that link newly diagnosed patients with trained volunteers and that help young cancer patients return to school after an absence resulting from treatment.

100% of proceeds raised will be donated to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.

Stafford Hills Foundation is an IRC 501(C)(3) Charity
