106.7 The Ride Named Official Media Partner

The Lymphomaniac Society is proud to announce 106.7 The Ride as an official media partner. The Ride is Little Rock's home for new country music with great on-air hosts and lots of fun events. We look forward to partnering with The Ride, appearing on-air to promote upcoming events, and telling listeners how to donate or apply for LS trips.

"We're so excited to have The Ride join our team as a media partner," said Elizabeth Fortune, Lymphomaniac Society president. "This is such an encouraging time for our organization as we grow and provide more trips to cancer survivors. We look forward to letting listeners know how they can support cancer survivors."

We'll keep you updated when we're on the station so you can tune in!

Arkansas Democrat-Gazette:
Lymphomaniacs Provide Break to Survivors

By Hunter Field 

A 2½-year bout with cancer taught Elizabeth Fortune that sometimes the best treatment is a break.

Her husband, Griffin Coop, learned it too — somewhere between the complicated medical terms and the doctor speak.

The couple believes so strongly in the idea that Coop, 37, a former assistant to Little Rock Mayor Mark Stodola, and Fortune, 40, a former supply planner at the L’Oreal plant in North Little Rock, quit their jobs to focus on sending people with cancer on short retreats.

Whether a brief sojourn to the Gulf Coast or a few days of rest at a Little Rock hotel, they want to give families fighting the disease a relaxing vacation free of charge.

Lymphomaniac Society Awards Four Trips

The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette article did a lot to help get the Lymphomaniac Society name out to the public. In the matter of 24 hours, we received more applications than we’d received since starting in September. Our advisory committee met in late January and awarded trips to new recipients.

We are now currently working on coordinating trips for recipients to Fayetteville, Pensacola, and Cincinnati (pictured above). It was so much fun emailing applicants letting them know they received a trip. We get responses back that make us feel so good about the work we’re doing.

Also new this month—we added a stay at Red Apple Inn in Heber Springs, as well as stays at South Shore Resort on Lake Hamilton. Be sure to spread the word about these trips or nominate someone yourself. 

Lymphomaniacs to Participate in Arkansas Gives

Mark your calendars for an exciting giving event on Thursday, April 7. The Lymphomaniac Society is excited to participate in the 2016 Arkansas Gives event. ArkansasGives.org is a 12-hour giving event sponsored by the Arkansas Community Foundation. The online event is Thursday, April 7. During this day of giving, Arkansans make donations on a single day in recognition of the vital work of local charitable organizations. As a special incentive to give, each gift made through ArkansasGives on April 7 will be matched with additional bonus dollars; the more you give, the more bonus dollars the Lymphomaniac Society will receive.

We’re in the process of planning four trips with two applicants waiting for trips so ArkansasGives is a great opportunity for us to raise some funds to provide meaningful and memorable trips.

Quote of the Month

“I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear.”
