Volunteer your remarketable gifts and become more marketable!

Volunteer and Market Yourself…Remarkably

“Remarkable Marketable Mehelps you share your remarkable gifts volunteering, making you more marketable along the way.

By Jean Robb

I didn’t have the best childhood. We didn’t have much, so if you needed something you had to find a way to get it. I started working at 11 years old selling candy door to door. I know very scary right, but at 11 years old all I knew was I had to sell a certain amount of candy before I could go home. When I knocked on a door, out came my foot and I didn’t move it until you bought a box of candy. The skills I learned from my difficult childhood, (my lemons) really became a blessing (my lemonade).

I learned at a really young age that persistence will open many doors. As an adult I have walked out on a stage with a tiger after Zig Ziglar and talked to over 2,000 people about overcoming their fears. I know you must be thinking…a tiger? I have volunteered for over 15 years with big cat sanctuaries and have learned you can do something you really love while helping others in remarkable ways. In today’s economy you hear lots of people say they can’t find a job. So what happens?

The longer you’re out of work, you start to lose your contacts. You’re not keeping up with the day-to-day changes in your trade. You’re simply out of the loop. The longer you’re in this position the more the fear sets in. What if I can’t find a job? I have so much to offer, how do I get someone to talk to me? Well as you can see, fear can really take a hold of you, it makes you feel like a deer in the headlights. How do you overcome these things?

First off, STOP listening to the FEAR and STOP making EXCUSES. Look, I’ve made many of the same excuses when I’ve let fear be a part of my life. I now realize that the answer to overcoming the fear is to replace it with remarkable things you can be proud of. Instead of asking why would anyone want to hire me, ask yourself why not me?

After volunteering you could say. Look at the change I’ve made in the lives of others. Look what I’ve learned along the way. Look at the skills I’ve been taught while helping others. Look at the great people I’ve met. They’ve seen first hand the type of passion I put into any job I take on. So how will this work? I have made a commitment to bring you a volunteering opportunity at least once a week. The process of volunteering can be more complicated than people may think.

Email me your news. I have included in each story all the information I received and the direct contacts to make it really easy for you to get your foot in the door.Network, Network, Network” See how you can use that experience to build your resume. Most of all how did you feel about helping others today.

My goal is to get you to share with all of us your experience. Think about how much we can learn from each other. Please email me your pictures and story to so I can post them each day. I will add the trademarks, video and links for you.

What Is Lymphoma?

Lymphoma is the name for a group of blood cancers that develop in the lymphatic system. The two main types are Hodgkin lymphoma and non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL).
In 2010, about 628,415 people are living with lymphoma or are in remission (no sign of the disease). This number includes about 153,535 people with Hodgkin lymphoma and 474,880 people with NHL.
Hodgkin lymphoma has characteristics that distinguish it from other diseases classified as lymphoma, including the presence of Reed-Sternberg cells. These are large, cancerous cells found in Hodgkin lymphoma tissues, named for the scientists who first identified them. Hodgkin lymphoma is one of the most curable forms of cancer.
NHL represents a diverse group of diseases distinguished by the characteristics of the cancer cells associated with each disease type. Most people with NHL have a B-cell type of NHL (about 85 percent). The others have a T-cell type or an NK-cell type of lymphoma. Some patients with fast-growing NHL can be cured. For patients with slow-growing NHL, treatment may keep the disease in check for many years.

LLS Support Services

The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) offers many ways to help you cope, from live telephone support to family support groups to online chats and more. To learn more about our free programs for patients, family members and caregivers, see Get Information and Support.
We also offer free informational publications and education programs, such as:
  • disease and treatment guides for Hodgkin's lymphoma and NHL
  • the Lymphoma Education Series featuring the latest information about each disease type and treatment options
  • LymphomaLinks, a monthly eNewsletter with the latest news, research updates, clinical trials and events sponsored by LLS
  • eNewsline, a monthly eNewsletter with the latest information about blood cancer research and treatment, LLS events, news and featured LLS programs and comments from individuals coping with blood cancer

Mission and Goals

The mission of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) is: Cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin's disease and myeloma, and improve the quality of life of patients and their families.
LLS is the world's largest voluntary health agency dedicated to blood cancer. LLS funds lifesaving blood cancer research around the world and provides free information and support services.

Our Vision for 2010-2011

Each year, we move closer to our goal of finding a cure for blood cancer. This year to support our mission, we'll be focusing on these specific goals:
  • Continue to fund blood cancer research projects that offer the best chance of accelerating development of new, promising treatment therapies
  • Give more people with blood cancer access to clinical trials
  • Give all people with blood cancer--at every stage of their journey--access to the information and services they need to fight and manage their disease

Our Plan for Growth

We can't achieve our mission without the support of our volunteers, donors, partners and sponsors. We'll continue to reach out to these generous contributors this year to help increase our net revenue. Our plans to do this include:
  • Have volunteers participate more than ever in all our revenue-generating activities. We're encouraging our volunteers to contribute their talents and relationships to growing LLS events and asking their friends, families, co-workers and everyone they know to become LLS sponsors, team members and participants.
  • Continue to offer corporations and organizations tangible reasons aligned with their business goals to partner with LLS through sponsorships, special promotions, co-branding and more.
  • Develop and expand our fundraising programs across Canada.
  • Build our donor pipeline and thank our donors for their generosity in meaningful ways.

Our Promise

LLS will continue to evolve as a world-class organization by engaging our staff, volunteers and partners to strengthen and expand our effectiveness across all programs.

Our North Star 2015 Vision

By fulfilling our goals and growth plans and continuing to be dedicated to our mission, we'll take a major step toward our longer-term objective: The North Star 2015 Vision.
Our North Star 2015 Vision aspires to create a better future for people with blood cancer. Our volunteers and staff will play key roles in achieving the improved outcomes we envision for patients.
By 2015, we're looking to:
  • achieve a high cure rate for most people with blood cancers
  • help those patients who continue to need treatment for blood cancers manage their illness with good quality of life
  • help patients, their families and caregivers navigate the healthcare system by giving them access to effective treatments, information, resources and physical and emotional support
