Honor Your Mother with a Tribute Gift to The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society

WHITE PLAINS, N.Y., April 20 /PRNewswire/ -- For all the acts of kindness, large and small, that mothers perform on behalf of their children and other loved ones every day, now is the perfect time to do something special to pay tribute to mothers.

Consider the heroic gesture performed by Katy Moeller of Santa Monica, Calif. There is nothing more terrifying for a mother than to watch helplessly as her child suffers. Moeller watched in agony as her three-year-old daughter, Audrey, battled leukemia several years ago. To honor her daughter's battle, Moeller took on a physical challenge of her own. She signed on with The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Team In Training and ran in the Carlsbad Marathon in January 2008 while raising funds to support live-saving blood cancer research, education and patient services. Now five, Audrey has responded well to treatment and living a fairly normal life for a child her age.

"TNT enabled me to do something positive for Audrey and all others fighting blood cancers," Moeller says.

Moeller's act is a powerful example of a mother's love. Now you can do something special to show appreciation for all the ways that mothers such as Moeller do for others. You can pay homage to your own mother by going to www.lls.org/donate and making a donation, helping to ensure that every child stricken with a blood cancer can live a long and prosperous life. You can designate your gift in honor of your mother and a special card will be sent to her attention.

In order to have the acknowledgement card sent by Mother's Day your tribute donation must be made by May 4!
