On Friday, I got an email from a fan of the Nation and someone asking for help regarding a serious situation. Please read this statement and help the person in need – she’s a Phillies fan like all of us!

Hey Pat -

I am a huge follower/fan of Phillies Nation. Usually, I visit your blog to catch up the latest news with the Phillies, however, tonight I am writing to you to beg! :)

It is my honor to inform you that my aunt, Annmarie Hagan, has been nominated as a candidate for the 2011 Woman of the Year award with The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) in Philadelphia! Annmarie is a SURVIVOR of Inflammatory Breast Cancer, an extremely aggressive form of cancer with low survivor rates. To celebrate her health and well-being as well as her recent charitable venture, I have joined Annmarie’s campaign team and we are currently in the midst of a 10-week “race” for Annmarie to become Woman of the Year by raising the most funds possible which will help the LLS’s mission to find a cure for all cancers and improve the quality of life of patients and their families. Our goal is to raise $100,000 in the 10 week period and we need your help!

We are raffling a fantastic package (please see attached poster with photos) to raise funds for this very worthy cause and, on behalf of Team Annmarie, I would like to say we would be HONORED to have you plug a mention of this raffle fundraiser within one of your upcoming blog entries and Facebook status updates.

WIN A SET OF FOUR INDIVIDUALLY AUTOGRAPHED BASEBALLS BY
THE PHILADELPHIA PHILLIES’ FOUR ACES AND FOUR SEATS IN THE HALL OF FAME CLUB FOR A RED SOX vs PHILLIES GAME | JUNE 2011

RAFFLE DRAWING TO BE HELD MAY 5, 2011 AT THE LLS GALA
$10 PER RAFFLE CHANCE FOR ONE “FOUR ACES & FOUR SEATS” GRAND PRIZE

Donate by credit card through this website – http://epa.mwoyphilly.llsevent.org/annmariehagan . For every $10 donated, you will receive one raffle chance to be entered into the “Four Aces & Four Seats” prize. YOUR DONATION IS TAX DEDUCTIBLE. THE LLS TAX ID # IS 13-56444916

Most of us have been faced with fighting cancer, either personally or with someone that we love very much. Let’s work together and beat these incredible diseases. All proceeds benefit the LLS.

Many thanks,

Colleen

    As a temporary cancer ‘survivor’ I applaud her efforts! My incurable cancer, Multiple Myeloma, falls under the same clasification as Leukemia & Lymphoma since it is also a blood cancer/disorder. It generaly effects those in their late 60s & 70s but got me when I was 41. I’ve survived almost 6 years but there is no cure so it is coming back with a vengence at some point whether i like it or not! All I can do is take on the next treatment & fight to the bitter end….if for nothing else for my 3 kids & wife and to see as many Phillies & Flyers games, Campaigns & TITLES as possible!

    Thank you so much Annmarie Hagan, and everyone like her, because it is people like you that help make it possible for people like me to still be around & kicking after 6 years! Multiple Myeloma was an 18 month death sentence 20 years ago! Also, a big thanks to everyone else from Phillies Nation that donates because times are tough all over but know your donations to the cure & treatment of Blood Cancers is greatly appreciated, desperately needed & really make a big difference in so many lives! You know most childhood leukemia is 95% curable? WOW! Wish I had a 50-50 that won’t kill me in the process BUT they are getting there! That is why every little bit matters…you never know what dollar of funding is going to result in cures or improved treatments or drugs.

    thanks!
