I know I have been silent of late. I’ve been moving and working and stewing and watching too much MSNBC.

While I have been doing all that my daughter Lucy has been raising a lot of money to help find a cure for Leukemia and Lymphoma and is running for Student of the Year. Like in a national contest. Like if she raises the most money she is the National Student of the Year.

I know I had my coat drive and asked you all to give.  And I know whatever party you are affiliated with is asking for daily donations. I know it’s almost tax time. I know schools want their building funds and on and on. And we are going to have to all give to the EPA and the arts…stop Tracey no politics during the plea……

But, if you can donate any little thing to help this cause and help my kid cure cancer. OK, that last sentence was taking it one step too far. But you get the idea.

I’m so proud of her.  So, you know a mom’s gotta do, what a mom’s gotta do.  And in my case that is helping my kids out in any way I can. And this is a truly important cause. This is not just a box of cookies, though those cookies rock and the I was not dissing Girl Scouts in any way.

Contest ends the end of the week. So you gotta click and give. That’s kind why I waited so long. No time to think. No time  to say I will do it next week, it’s this week or no week.

Thank you in advance and I won’t ask you for any thing else for a long time. I promise. Like til next year’s coat drive.

And I’m on the verge of becoming amusing again very soon. I promise.




My name is Lucy Horowitz. I live in New York City and am a junior at The Hewitt School. Please join me in supporting The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) by making a donation to my fundraising campaign.  Every 3 minutes someone is diagnosed with a blood cancer, while every 9 minutes someone loses their battle with a blood cancer. Sadly, my grandfather, Aaron Horowitz, passed away after a blood cancer battle recently. LLS’s continued advancements over the years are responsible for the blood cancer survival rate doubling and tripling; in some cases, the survival rate has even quadrupled. LLS is the leading source of free, highly specialized blood cancer information, education, and support for patients, survivors, families, and healthcare professionals.

And many LLS supported therapies not only help blood cancer patients but are now used to treat patients with rare forms of stomach and skin cancers. They’re even being tested in clinical trials for patients with a range of cancers including lung, brain, breast, pancreatic and prostate cancers. LLS funded drugs are now being tested for patients with other non-cancerous diseases like Diabetes, Rheumatoid Arthritis and Multiple Sclerosis.

We really are changing the face of blood cancer!

All donations are greatly appreciated and are tax deductible. They’ll not only support LLS research but patient services, advocacy, public and professional education, and community services as well.

Please visit my Web site often and bring friends who would also like to donate!

Thanks to your support, my efforts, will help fund the therapies and treatments and help save lives today.

On behalf of blood cancer patients everywhere I thank you for your support!
