Ben Cuda, fighting to wipe cancer clean!!

In March of 2015, my dad, Ben Cuda was diagnosed with Stage 4, Follicular Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma at the age of 58. He immediately began a six-treatment chemotherapy regimen and was in remission by October of 2015. Less than a year later the cancer had recurred and this time was more aggressive. He began a different chemotherapy cocktail; with his initial short remission time and other factors, the oncologist recommended an allogenic bone marrow transplant. This was a very aggressive treatment option, but at Dad’s then age of 61 it was the best option, and I was lucky enough to give the greatest gift back to my father, my bone marrow. On May 31, 2017 we completed the transplant. Dad is closing in on one-year post transplant and he is in a total remission.

The mission of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) is: Cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and myeloma, and improve the quality of life of patients and their families. Join our efforts to support this mission at the first annual Green Tie Gala at Visions KC in Briarcliff on Saturday, Aug 18th. During our inaugural event we have set a fundraising goal of $250,000. We will rely heavily on donations and support from approximately 400 attendees and over 100 sponsors and volunteers.
