Support Anthony, and Lallis & Higgins Insurance’s mission to raise $50,000 to help support families battling blood Cancers by donating here. Anthony Lallis of Lallis & Higgins Insurance has accepted the nomination of running as Boston’s 2023 Leukemia and Lymphoma All-Star Visionary of the year to raise funds to help with patient support. Anthony is the 2017 LLS New England Chapter Man of the Year winner, and raised over $50,000 thanks to his hard work, support from friends, family, and business partners. This year Anthony’s mission as an All-Star is to raise another $50,000 to help with patient support.
Safeco Insurance/Liberty Mutual helped kickstart Anthony’s mission by donating $10,000 through their Make More Happen Award. Anthony, and Lallis and Higgins Insurance were recognized for their work with the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society and presented with the $10,000 check in May.
LLS provided $241 million in financial assistance to over 42,000 patients in 2021 alone. The challenge to keep funds available to those in need has become greater with LLS seeing a 30% increase in requests for assistance last year.
Families need to adjust their life – most times it means a parent will need to stop working so they can be available for their child that is going through treatment while the other Parent works (often times picking up a second job). LLS not only provides funding towards medical studies helping cure cancer, they also help assist with co-pays, deductibles, transportation, parking, food, and hotel stays while a child is going through treatment.
Anthony was two years old, and the youngest of three when his Parents found out he had Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia (ALL). “My Parents had no idea how much their lives would change. My mother stayed with me in my hospital room while my Dad worked long shifts to make up for the lost income. We didn’t have much money before my diagnosis, so expenses for food, parking, gas and transportation were limited. Our family received assistance through programs like the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, and it is my mission to continuing to help families like mine that have their lives flipped upside down.”
