Dear Friends and Family,

The society that we live today is driven by time.  Every minute of every single day is scheduled for us.  For various reasons, we view one minute as something that cannot be spared. But what if I told you that every four minutes someone is diagnosed with a blood cancer? And, every 10 minutes, someone loses their battle.  This makes the reasons we value our time today seem trivial.

Leukemia causes more deaths than any other cancer among children and young adults under the age of 20.  New hope to find a cure for blood cancers has never been greater.  For this reason, Kansas Speedway has nominated me to run for Kansas City’s “Woman of the Year” on behalf of the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS). 

Candidates competing for Man & Woman of the Year are professionals from a variety of fields, and are united with one common goal…raise funds to help fight blood cancers.  All of the money raised from the Man & Woman of the Year campaign will go directly to the LLS in support of its longstanding mission to find a cure for blood cancers and improve the quality of life of patients and their families.

Keep in mind that all donations are tax-deductible. To donate securely online, please visit http://mid.mwoy.llsevent.org/HSTEINKUHL.  If you would like to mail a donation, please make checks payable to “The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society” and send to my attention at Kansas Speedway, 400 Speedway Blvd., Kansas City, Kansas, 66111.  Please make your contribution by May 7, 2012 to ensure it goes toward my campaign. 

Thank you for your time and support of this very worthy cause.
