Gary and Missy Pinkel both attended the Lymphoma Leukemia Society Mid-America chapter’s virtual Black Tie Ball where they served as honorary chairs.
The evening raised funds toward LLS’ mission of curing leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease, myeloma and improving the quality of life for patients and their families. The Black Tie Ball featured an auction with online bidding, personal experiences shared by Coach Pinkel and 10-year-old non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma survivor Magnus.
The theme of the evening was “Relentless—” the act of being persistent, constant and continuous. This theme was echoed in the stories both Magnus and Coach Pinkel shared about their own experiences with non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma and continuing to get up and face each day one at a time.
