The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society is "out for blood." That's because every
five minutes someone in the United States is diagnosed with a blood cancer and
every ten minutes someone dies from one of these diseases. To fund blood cancer
research and patient services the Society is hosting a charity auction on eBay
at www.ebay.com/OutForBlood, featuring items that
are perfect for Sharks fans.
The online charity auction will be managed by Kompolt and runs from May 8-18,
2006. For more information, visit www.ebay.com/OutForBlood

community the opportunity to learn more about The Leukemia & Lymphoma
Society and its efforts to fund research and help those diagnosed with these
debilitating diseases." Watkins is a member of The Leukemia & Lymphoma
