Mission

Lindsay’s Voice  was created as a way to celebrate the life of Lindsay (Wenzel) Lopez, a 32 yr old wife and Mother, who lost her 14-month battle against Leukemia on Nov 22, 2010.  In her memory we looked for a way to raise funds to support local patient services and research for anyone who is fighting blood cancers. We are fortunate to have exceptional medical facilities here in SE Wisconsin, who work tirelessly every day to advance the treatments, and extend and improve the quality of life for infants, children, teens, adults that are stricken with Leukemia or Lymphomas. This is our way of keeping Lindsay’s fighting spirit alive and help others.   We continue to be “Lindsay’s Voice"

Join our Mission to continue to fight for less toxic and more effective treatments, support local patient services and be Relentless for Cures!!

We have an aggressive goal of raising $50,000 this year through our Trees of Hope Festival event to benefit Children's Hospital of Wisconsin Research, Blood Center of WI and Be The Match (National Marrow Donor Program), Leukemia-Lymphoma Society of WI and patient services through Kathy's House. .Please join with us to help us reach and exceed this goal. Corporate support and involvement is needed and welcomed. Spotlight your company!  Organizations and individuals can also make a huge impact as you give back to the community. Make a tax deductible donation- by sponsoring a Themed Christmas Tree, Holiday Wreath, Gift Basket, or donating other Silent Auction items. 
Showcase your business and make a difference in the lives of families fighting these evil diseases.   

Lindsay's Voice is also a THRIVENT CHOICE approved charity.  See our DONATE NOW page for how you can help us.
