Leukemia Lymphoma Society

For the past five years, we’ve been privileged to tell the compelling stories of candidates to use as a central part of a multi-platform fundraising campaign. Working directly with the candidates and their support network, we shared their emotional stories of loss and struggle, but ultimately hope.

A note from tyler

about his ongoing “giveback” project


I firmly believing that one story, when shared, has the power to change the world. That guiding principal led me to one fateful afternoon when Kiernan Smith, I had just met, who lost her husband to Acute Myeloid Leukemia, with 3 year old twins to raise, opened up and shared her story with me. It wasn't an easy story to tell, but that wasn't for me to decide as she spoke with such emotion and drive to honor her husband that no questions were even needed. Her film helped raise tens of thousand of dollars for her Woman of the Year campaign and has since raised millions, yes millions more.

Kiernan’s story not only inspired others to donate to LLS but inspired me to continue to tell the stories of other survivors, fighters and families battling blood cancer. We've sponsored three candidates in the past four years and are proud to do our small part in the fight against cancer.
