Celebrating Volunteer Appreciation Week!

There are so many incredible volunteers that generously donate their time and effort to The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) to help fight blood cancer! This week is Volunteer Appreciation Week and we want to send a big thank you to everyone who has ever volunteered with our chapter or any LLS chapter across the country.

In celebration of Volunteer Appreciation Week, we will be highlighting a stellar volunteer each day from every department in our chapter. Today we will be featuring a very important donor development volunteer who has become a LLS celebrity in our chapter and nation-wide – Robert “Spider” Cantley!

Donor Development - Spider

Robert “Spider” Cantley, nicknamed after his long arms that came in handy as an instillation contractor, is the Greater Bay Area Chapter’s longest-standing and largest single fundraiser.  Spider has volunteered and fundraised for LLS for over 40 years, which has resulted in over $23 million raised through his efforts with Crippsmas Place, over 30 years of the KGO Radio Cure-A-Thon and his continuing annual fundraising campaign.  We would also like to recognize Spider’s wife, Jan Cantley, and their entire family for their incredible support.  A big thank you to Spider and his family for everything they’ve done to help fight blood cancer in the last 40 years!
