Linda is on a mission to sell 10,000 books, from May 18th to July 18th, helping more than 1.2 million Americans living with blood cancers.

Join Linda in this incredible opportunity to make a difference for those facing cancer and for the caretakers supporting their loved ones facing cancer.

Let’s Face it, Cancer Sucks!

Many of us personally know someone who has been consumed by this terrible disease. 

Unfortunately, cancer touches the lives of many. It’s something Linda is all too familiar with as 6 of 9 of her immediate family members have battled, are battling, or have lost their battle with cancer. More than anyone, Linda understands the impact cancer has on its victims and their caretakers. The feelings of hopelessness, anguish, and grief are too great to contain at times.  

But there is hope!

The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society invests $50-70 million annually, towards research, new treatments, and new therapies that are evolving to increase the lifespan and recovery of individuals diagnosed with blood cancers. Over the years, the support from people like you has been largely responsible for the blood cancer advancements that have doubled, tripled, and in some cases, quadrupled survival rates.

Linda has a campaign team, Canvas of Hope, full of an amazing group of people; each of whom hopes to build love and awareness for LLS by coming together as a community and contributing to help fight cancer. Their campaign is centered around the book - Canvas of Hope - which is meant to inspire you and those families facing cancer. Canvas of Hope features 38 words of impact that will awaken readers through both word meaning and art.
