Raising Awareness



Today I would like to raise attention to an organization that is very dear to me and my family. The organization is called “gotCUREage” which raises awareness to Hematologic cancers (cancers of the blood, bone marrow, and lymph nodes), such as leukemia, lymphoma, and myeloma.

Founder of gotCUREage is Lauren Blanchard who was diagnosed with Essential Thrombocytosis in December of 2009, but is a Chronic Leukemia fighter now.

She truly is an inspiration. A mother of 4 wonderful boys – she’s someone who not only stays strong – but tries to make the very best of her unexpected and yet unfortunate life-changing experience.

To learn more about Lauren and her organization please, click here.

This is a very dear topic to us since my very own mother was diagnosed with Essential Thrombocytosis (a rare chronic blood disorder characterized by the overproduction of platelets in the bone marrow) in 2010 also.

So, let us ALL help raise awareness together (!) and show the world that YOU have CUREage, too!

Browse their store here by purchasing merchandise that shows your support for cancer research. The proceeds from sales will be donated to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and Myeloproliferative Neoplasm Research Foundation.
