If you or someone you love has leukemia, you may wish to help in some way. Many organizations and associations sponsor fundraising events to raise money for leukemia research and patients, and to increase leukemia awareness. Participating in an event can help increase your knowledge about leukemia, as well as give you an opportunity to contribute to a worthwhile cause.
- Many of the organizations that host events are also looking for volunteers. Look for a "How You Can Help" or "Volunteer" link if you want to contribute your time to the cause. You can also e-mail the organization directly.
- If you're curious about the attire or style of an event, look for "Past Events" or "Past Event Photos." Most of these Web sites include photographs or descriptions of events from previous years
