As we celebrate #BlackHistoryMonth, we take this opportunity to recognize the achievements, highlight the struggles and honor the contributions of African Americans in the blood cancer community such as Wanda Pearson.

“People notice that I want to help do as much as I can to solve issues,” said Wanda Pearson, a multiple myeloma patient since 2007, and a volunteer advocacy leader in North Carolina.

Wanda, who works for the American Red Cross, believes LLS picked up on her tenacity when tapping her for this prominent volunteer role in 2018. Her duties included organizing and leading meetings with other advocates and sharing her stories with lawmakers at both the state and federal level.

She urged elected leaders to ensure coverage with preexisting conditions, restrict “junk” insurance plans that often fail to cover patients, and protect patients from surprise medical bills.

In 2019, Wanda visited Washington, D.C., along with other advocates, to meet with members of Congress. The pandemic caused her advocacy to go virtual in 2020, with letters and targeted phone calls replacing in-person meetings. In 2020, she also took on a new role with LLS, serving as a volunteer on a new committee of advocates focused on promoting diversity and inclusion.

We're proud of Wanda and all of our passionate and tenacious advocates. To learn more about opportunities to advocate with us, visit >> https://bit.ly/3jaLtj9
