The Eastern Pennsylvania Chapter of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) has announced that top 40 recording artist Doreen Taylor will perform at the organization’s prestigious 2016 Man & Woman of the Year Grand Finale Celebration at the Lowes Hotel Philadelphia on Friday, June 10th, 2016.
Doreen Taylor will be performing a special musical tribute in honor of two patient heroes, the 2016 Boy and Girl of the Year: Garrett and Savanah who are both cancer survivors. Fifteen candidates have set a goal of raising $500,000 during their 10-week campaign in honor of Garrett and Savannah and have a mission of not only raising funds for lifesaving blood cancer research, but also raising awareness for LLS’s mission: to cure leukemia, lymphoma and myeloma, and to improve the quality of life for patients and their families.
“Doreen has personally known the devastation of losing more than one person in her life to a blood cancer and is very passionate about helping find a cure to wipe out this epidemic. We are thrilled that Doreen Taylor has chosen to not only give her time and enormous talent, but her love and support to LLS. We are so excited to have her perform at our 2016 Man & Woman of the Year Grand Finale Celebration!” said LLS Senior Campaign Manager, Sarah Langevin Hopkins.
