Welcome to Kra Riddell’s Woman of the Year Homepage!

Kra Riddell- Leukemia and Lymphoma Society- Woman of the Year

Why am I a candidate?

I want to make a difference in the world, whether it directly affects one person that can pass their life change on to another, many people at once, or a domino effect of events that creates a better atmosphere for our society and community. Last November of 2010, I woke up one morning with a phenomenal feeling of inspiration. Honestly, while I was taking a shower, I wondered “what is my purpose,” “how can I make a difference in a society that has grown so distant from our neighbors?” This feeling of change and re-evolution, where people to care of people to better the world. I thought and thought, of how I, Kra Riddell a 21 year-old college graduate that works more than often could possibly have the power or influence to better my community, the nation, but the world. I began remembering a wonderful society, that my company, Lethal Rhythms sponsored June of 2010, the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. My mind began spinning, I would run for Woman of the Year 2011 and raise awareness of LLS, funds for research and treatments, and hopefully influence young woman in a time when jobs are scare and education is mere commonality to succeed. I thought this could be a global example of true passion and care for people that I have no connection or familiarity with.

The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society

Fortunately, I was nominated for a cause and asked to run as a candidate in December 2010. I was so honored that I still feel as if it is a dream that I am unprepared for. This chance of a lifetime to make a difference is such an honor. I understand what it is like to lose someone close, a family member, a friend, a supporter, but I have not experienced friends or family going through stages of Leukemia or Lymphoma. I was nominated for a cause and am dedicated to our future. I will learn more about blood cancer, from the potential causes to advanced research that is being used in remission today. I’m hoping to create vast awareness of the 10-week campaign period and promote good help and support nationally and globally. My personal goal is to raise $30,000 toward this cause, which 90% goes back to research and patient treatment. Though it may seem like such a small contribution, I hope it will be a start for others to take action, whether it is big or small because every action we take can make a difference tomorrow. How you can support me? I ask that you join me by making a contribution to my fundraising campaign. Each dollar I raise counts as one vote and the candidate who gets the most donations is named the local Man or Woman of the Year. I am raising money in honor of The Boy and Girl of the year, Jordan and Christina, local children in the Atlanta, GA who are blood cancer survivors. I truly hope to help find cures for blood cancers.
