We are very fortunate to already have everything newlyweds would need to start a new life together. So instead of setting up a wedding registry, we are humbly suggesting that those who wish to do so donate to one of our favorite charities.
The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS) is a forerunner in blood cancer research and policy advancement. They also provide immense support to people with blood cancer--emotional, educational, and financial. This organization holds a special place in Amanda's heart, as it provided financial support to her father during his struggle with Acute Myeloid Leukemia and helped pay for his medical bills. Though they could not do so this year due to the pandemic, Amanda and her siblings, Rich, Kyle, and Jason, have been hosting a golf fundraiser for LLS in their dad's memory since 2014 as a way of saying "thank you." So far they have raised over $12,000 for LLS.
