Global Research Foundation Fundraising
Attendees of the event included friends and family of Michael and Joy, MD Anderson Leukemia faculty and fellows, CLL Global board members, and of course our very own Dr. Michael Keating. Donations from the event are still being tallied but to date over $5000 has been raised for the foundation.
CLL Global is pleased to partner with our supporters through multiple mechanisms to increase awareness of the disease, raise funds to support cutting edge research and patient education events, and to bring together our incredible community of CLL survivors, family members, and caregivers. Please join me in thanking the Doustans and LeeAnne for their hard work and commitment to supporting CLL Global Research Foundation.
Skate for a Cure
The Skate for a Cure events are held at the Saveology Iceplex in Coral Springs. Half of the admission fees from each event are designated for CLL Global. The girls organize three events per year, and the first event was held on November 12, 2011. The Panthers girls have already benefited CLL Global, and their ongoing support will continue to help accelerate CLL research.

Will Newman, Believe Again
Will and his dad wrote a holiday song titled “Believe Again” and recorded it along with some other holiday favorites. The product of their hard work is an album also titled Believe Again which is sold online through Will’s website (www.willnewmanmusic.com). Will’s parents donated the costs of the production, manufacturing and promotion of the album. They wanted to ensure that all of the money from the sales of the “Believe Again” project could be donated to CLL Global to help bring a miracle to the Newman Family and all families impacted by CLL.
Rene Uzé, Baton Rouge Salon Owner Supports CLL Global
René’s story was a perfect fit for Rick Domeier and Max Davis’ book, “Can I Get a Do Over?,” which is a compilation of “unforgettable stories of second chances and life makeovers”. The two authors joined René for a book signing and reception at Forum, a Rene’ Uze’ Salon, in Baton Rouge in June 2011. Book sales from the reception were contributed in part to CLL Global.
