Cecile Roth: 2016 Woman of the Year

What happens when you nominate a mom who lost her son 20 years ago to Leukemia and challenge her to fundraise dollars that will pay for needed research to Cure Cancer Today?

You get a woman driven to do all that she can to put together a team and aim to be named Woman of the Year not just for Delaware, but for the National Leukemia Lymphoma Society’s Man and Woman of the Year Campaign. Last year’s Delaware chapter winner raised over $60,000 the National winner raised more than $400,000. How much will Cecile Roth raise?

Only you can help her exceed her goal! And you can help her raise well beyond the $50,000 needed to connect her name to a project within one of the 13 cutting-edge LLS-funded research portfolios. Research Means Answers.

The doctors said there was a 90% success rate. But 90% wasn’t good enough for Robert. We need to close that gap! Ceil’s campaign is in memoriam for her son Robert.

Her fight is for her own battle against Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia (she was diagnosed in 2014). And her energy is fueled by a team who is by her side to help make her campaign to cure cancer today a success!
