Many in our community have been affected by Leukemia in some way…
James “Jimmy” Lange, a LeClaire Paramedic with Medic EMS, was diagnosed with Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia in October of 2014.
This type of Leukemia is a long, drawn out type and until symptoms get stronger there is not much that can be done but monitoring. One day Jimmy went to the doctor and was basically told there is nothing he can do right now to help himself. Jimmy then said “I can do something, let’s find a cure for leukemia!!!” He rallied a group of people on Facebook and now we have “Cure It With Corn”.
This is not a fundraiser for Jimmy. This is a fundraiser to raise money to help find a cure for leukemia, but this is Jimmy’s brain child.
So, join us in celebrating life…and please help us find a cure.
