Each year the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) selects a dynamic and community-minded group of individuals for the “Man & Woman of the Year” campaign. These individuals spend 10 weeks raising funds for blood cancer research in honor of the Boy and Girl of the Year, who are local blood cancer survivors and sources of inspiration. To read more about this year’s Boy and Girl of the year, click here.
How does the campaign work? These men and women spend 10 weeks raising as much money as they can. At the end of 10 weeks the man and woman that raised the most money are award the Man of the Year and Woman of the year title!
This year, two very amazing people I know were chosen to be candidates! Jessica Thomas (Woman of the Year candidate) & Patrick McCarthy (Man of the Year candidate) are both competing against their fellow men and women to raise money and I am honored to be helping them both!!
So, what is Shop My Savannah doing to help them raise money? Well, starting today through May 31, 30% of every Shop My Savannah Discount Card will be split 50/50 between Jessica and Patrick’s campaigns. Shop My Savannah Discount Cards are on sale for $35 for a year’s worth of discounts at over 25 participating local retailers. Purchase your card today by clicking here and support these two amazing candidates while getting yourself an awesome discount card!

“Believe you can and you’re half way there”– Theodore Roosevelt
Nothing could be more true. Every time I read this quote I feel encouraged, strengthened and hopeful.
Believing in ourselves is so important. Once you realize and believe that you are capable of achieving anything you put your mind to, you have won half of the battle. Life is full of battles, and unfortunately cancer is one of them. From a young age I have whitnessed the impact of cancer — the impact on friends, family, and caregivers. My passion for eradicating this disease led me to a carrer healthcare. I may not be the researcher who finds a cure, but I can make a difference. Will you help me?
Please join me in supporting The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) by making a donation to my fundraising campaign for Woman of the Year. Every dollar I raise counts as one vote and the candidate who gets the most votes/raises the most money is named the Man or Woman of the Year.
But as you know, everyone wins when cancer loses, and thanks to your support, my efforts will help fund the therapies and treatments that save lives, not someday but today.
We really are getting close to our goal of a world without blood cancers!
All donations are greatly appreciated and tax deductible. They’ll not only support LLS research, but patient services, advocacy, public and professional education, and community services as well.
Please visit my Web site often and tell friends who would also like to donate!
On behalf of blood cancer patients everywhere, thank you for your support! For more information about LLS, please visit www.lls.org.
Please join me in supporting The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) by making a donation to my fundraising campaign for Man or Woman of the Year. I am part of team working to raise as much as possible in a 10-week period. Every dollar I raise counts as one vote and the candidate who gets the most votes/raises the most money is named the Man or Woman of the Year. More research is needed to ensure access to treatments that will save even more lives and create a world without blood cancers.
I was born and raised in Savannah, Georgia and attended Benedictine Military School. I followed my dream of playing baseball at LaGrange College in LaGrange, Georgia and met my wife, Emily. We returned to Savannah in 2006 to start our family. We now have a 3 1/2 year old boy named Rhett and a little girl arriving at the end of May. LLS has been a very special cause to us over the years and I am more than thrilled to dive into this journey. I can’t think of a better cause to support.
To learn more about the campaign: www.mwoy.org
I’m raising money this year in memory of my cousin by marriage. Karen Rahe Hamilton, age 20, died Sunday, March 19, 2006, after an 11 year battle with Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia. Karen was from Tullahoma, Tennessee, graduated with honors from Tullahoma High School in 2003 and attended Motlow State Community College. Karen tried to help others with cancer and raised money for the Multi-County Cancer Network. She lived for swimming and I had the opportunity to get to know Karen before she passed away 3 months before my wife and I married in June of 2006. I am also reaching my goal in memory of my wife’s grandfather, Jack Breed, who lived with Chronic Leukemia for many years.
But as you know, everyone wins when cancer loses, and thanks to your support, my efforts will help fund the therapies and treatments that save lives, not someday but today. Over the years, support from people like you has been responsible for the blood cancer advancements that have doubled, tripled, and in some cases quadrupled the survival rate for some blood cancers.
As I mentioned above, I have a 3 1/2 year old son named Rhett and a little girl on the way (due June 4th). Becoming a father has really opened my eyes to many challenges our children could face over a lifetime. Knowing that anything is possible when it comes to our childrens’ health, I want to help in any way I can to raise money for a cure. Watching young children fight this terrible disease has really hit home as I watch my son grow bigger every day. I cannot imagine the strength and courage that other parents and children must endure while fighting these diseases. If my campaign can help these patients in the least bit, then I know I have completed my mission. Every little bit helps and I plan to knock this one out of the park!
Many LLS supported therapies not only help blood cancer patients, but are also now used to treat patients with rare forms of stomach and skin cancers and are in clinical trials for patients with lung, brain, breast, pancreatic and prostate cancers. And LLS funded drugs like targeted therapies and immunotherapies are now saving thousands of lives every day.
We really are getting close to our goal of a world without blood cancers!

If I had to pick the top three questions about shopping in Savannah that I get asked the most, “So, who is having a sale?” would be at the top of that list. So, in trying to come up with some new ideas for the site I thought we would try posting all the sales and events I know about in one post each week! Every Sunday I will compile any sales or events that I know about and post them here on the blog.
So, without further ado, here’s the first Sales and Events of the Week….
First up: Villa Savannah is hosting multiple events this spring. Their first event, Glitz, is taking place Thursday, April 2 from 6pm – 8pm. This Designer expo is for all design fields in Savannah, including wedding planners, event planners, interior designers, florists, etc. but everyone is invited to attend!
2 for $22 Fizzie 6-Packs – 15% off Glycerin Soap – Save 25% on Large Salt Scrubs
Plus, if you place your orders online by April 1 they’ll ensure you have your goodies before Easter!
Going on now – April 3, 2015 you’ll get 20% off all regular priced dresses at Veronica’s Closet. This is the perfect opportunity to pick up that Easter dress you still don’t have!!
That’s all for right now. If/when I find out any more sales or events for the week, I’ll be updating this post os check back often!
Happy Shopping, y’all.
