About The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS):

LLS is the world’s largest voluntary health organization dedicated to funding blood cancer research and providing education on patient services. Founded in 1949, LLS is relentless in pursuit of their mission: Cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and myeloma, and improve the quality of life of patients and their families.

About The Man & Woman of the Year Campaign:

The Man & Woman of the Year (MWOY) competition began in 1990 in the Northern California LLS Chapter. The first event was held in remembrance of John Spencer, a valued Hastings Department Store employee who died of leukemia at the age of 39. It was in John’s memory that Hastings began supporting LLS. Since then, more and more chapters have added the Man & Woman of the Year campaign. In 2012 candidates collectively raised more than $19.1 million for blood cancer research and patient services. Female candidates compete in honor of the Boy of the Year; the male candidates compete in honor of the Girl of the Year. The amounts raised are TOP SECRET and are not disclosed until the local Man & Woman of the Year are announced at a Grand Finale Celebration.  This competition is 10 weeks long, beginning at the Kickoff on March 7, 2013 and ending at the Grand Finale Celebration on May 18, 2013.

2013 Girl & Boy of the Year Connor Hernandez and Mia Dominguez, respectively.
