Jacques L. Beauchamp, President of Spine & Sport (http://www.spinesport.org/), is competing for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) Man of the Year Award. The Man and Woman of the Year awards are fundraising efforts for LLS, with every dollar raised counting as a vote. Candidates for Man and Woman of the Year compete in honor of children who are local blood cancer survivors. Through this campaign, LLS has been able to invest more than $1 billion in blood cancer research. Beauchamp will help raise funds for LLS, with an overall goal of raising $40,000 for the organization.

Through his work as a Savannah physical therapist (http://www.spinesport.org/), Beauchamp has had a personal connection to LLS, having been in contact with numerous patients personally coping with blood cancer or dealing with other blood cancer patients, as his practice has been serving on the front lines in bringing recovering patients back to health after treatment has been initiated.
