Set sail for cancer cures - A message from Gary Jobson
by Leukemia & Lymphoma Society on 19 Jan 2012
From the America's Cup to Fastnet to casual sails with my family and friends, I've had the opportunity to be a part of a variety of sailing experiences. In terms of personal accomplishments, my participation in the Leukemia Cup Regatta as its national chairman since 1993 has been among the most gratifying of my life.

The sailors, patients and family members I've met along the way have only deepened my resolve to stop blood cancers from taking more lives. As a lymphoma survivor, I appreciate the support of the sailing community all the more!
The 2012 Leukemia Cup Regatta schedule has just been released and we have another exciting sailing campaign ahead, with a record 48 events on our calendar. I invite you to register and start fundraising now for a Leukemia Cup in your area or in a favorite sailing location, so that you can get a head-start on joining me at our Fantasy Sail December 7-9, 2012 at the Southern YC in New Orleans, the third-oldest yacht club in the country.

If you have attended a Fantasy Sail in the past, you already know about this great weekend which provides an opportunity for the top fundraising Leukemia Cup Regatta participants to celebrate their success. By raising $8,500 or more by November 1, 2012, you can join us in New Orleans and enjoy a great weekend of sailing and social activities with a group of dedicated people who have provided exceptional support for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's efforts to discover new therapies and cures for blood cancers!

Register now and raise funds to help us support cancer research. I am a blood cancer survivor thanks to people like you supporting The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's funding of the most promising blood cancer research anywhere.
Thank you for your support and best wishes for a great sailing season in 2012!
