The 2022 nominations for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Man & Woman of the Year campaign have kick-started. The list of nominated candidates has been released, and renowned entrepreneur Jeff Krammer is one of the nominees. He shares with us what this means to him and the impact this campaign has on society.
More and more people are being diagnosed with blood cancer in the United States, and out of those, more than 1/3 do not live past five years after the diagnosis, says Jeff Krammer. This is because many do not have the finances to continue treatment. They also lack emotional support and feel like they are fighting the battle all by themselves, which can affect their mental health and disrupt the treatment process. Another challenge is inadequate healthcare resources making it difficult to conduct research.
Together with his team at The Amazon Group, Jeff has partnered with the Leukemia Lymphoma Cancer Society in their ten-week-long fundraising campaign to support research and provide financial help to those affected by cancer. He is helping raise awareness about blood cancer, supporting all those who have been affected while educating people on the topic.
Cancer is not just one disease but is an umbrella term for more than 200 distinct diseases, including blood cancer, and each is caused by a different set of mutations. To better understand it and find treatment, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society has made it its mission to fight against cancer and improve patients’ quality of life by establishing a research center. They provide free information and support services, get help from well-wishers, and run campaigns like the ten-week-long fundraising campaign that Jeff is a part of.
According to Jeff Krammer, this is something that he has wanted to do for some time. Now that he has been nominated, he plans to join the others in the campaign, raising funds to help research and save more lives.
“I think what The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society is doing is great and is a huge step in the right direction,” says Jeff. He adds that being a part of this campaign is a big moment in his life, and he wishes to use all the resources at his disposal to help fight blood cancer. Jeff Krammer is also encouraging others and calling upon well-wishers to join the campaign to help make a difference.
Jeff says he is grateful for the support his team members at The Amazon Group have shown him in joining him in this campaign and collecting funds to help the LLS with their research. They are also educating the people of South Florida to know about blood cancer and how to take better care of their health.
As they prepare to start the ten-week campaign, Jeff and his team are making a difference not only in the real estate sector but also in healthcare. They are helping fight blood cancer and inviting everyone in real estate to join the movement to collect money to aid in medical research.
