For their wedding on June 5, 2021, Michael and Elizabeth wanted to include something special on their registry as an alternative to the usual items. Michael's father, Robert, lost his battle with Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma when Michael was just 16 months old. Nevertheless, Michael has been impacted throughout his life in countless ways by his father's legacy. Elizabeth and Michael saw an opportunity to pay these blessings forward with an appeal to fight the very disease that took Robert far too early. Any donation to this campaign will be lovingly accepted and 100% of the donation amount will go directly to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.

Should you decide to donate, Michael and Elizabeth sincerely thank you for your love and support, and for helping others to cope with these deadly diseases.
