Victory over Juvenile Leukemia

Fortunately, none of us here at Victory have a personal leukemia story to tell. But we certainly know of them, and therefore, how close this disease has gotten to us, while truly impacting the lives of other friends.

When presented with the opportunity to support fundraising efforts of the JMML Foundation and make a difference in the lives of youngsters affected by Juvenile Myelomonocytic Leukemia, we jumped at the chance. JMML is a rare form of leukemia which affects children generally under the age of five. The only curative treatment is a bone marrow transplant and overall survival rate is only about 60%. The JMML Foundation exists to find a cure for JMML, and to improve the quality of life of JMML patients and families through research, education, advocacy, and charity.

The great local bands The Swimmers, Audible and East Hundred are committed to the cause as well. Come on out to Johnny Brenda’s on January 29 and hoist a draft Victory beer or two, and in doing so, contribute to the cause of Victory Over Leukemia.
