Juan Carlos Zapata and Ruby Grandy are just two of the many faces of inspiration for our eleven amazing Man & Woman of the Year candidates. Juan Carlos and Ruby are both undergoing treatment for acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL), the most common form of childhood leukemia.
We were so lucky to have both Juan Carlos and Ruby at our 2011 Man & Woman of the Year Kickoff on March 31st. Juan moved the crowd with a performance of his song, “Imagine Cancer Free,” a take on the John Lennon classic.
The Man Woman of the Year fundraising campaign lasts just ten weeks and the winners will announced at the Grand Finale on June 4th at the San Francisco Fairmont.
Check out Juan Carlos’ and Ruby’s stories on the campaign website. For more about the Man & Woman of the Year candidates, their fundraising events and the Grand Finale, visit www.mwoy.org/sf or follow the campaign on Facebook.
