White Plains, NY(March 29, 2012) - The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) extends its best wishes to actor, musician and celebrity golfer Jack Wagner, a longtime LLS supporter, as he continues his exciting stint as a participant on this season's Dancing With The Stars!
LLS encourages its friends and supporters to vote for Wagner each week to help him extend his run on the popular show.
"A vote for Jack is a vote for blood cancer awareness as he has been a committed supporter of the LLS mission for many years," says LLS Chief Marketing and Revenue Officer Nancy L. Klein.
Wagner is an LLS National Ambassador and the creator of the annual Jack Wagner Celebrity Golf Classic that benefits LLS. This year's classic is taking place in Los Angeles on April 16, 2012. Wagner's connection to the LLS mission is deeply personal. He lost his father to multiple myeloma in 1990, and his brother, Dennis, is a leukemia survivor who received a bone marrow transplant in 2007.
