Yasmani Grandal Raising Awareness for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society

Dodgers’ catcher Yasmani Grandal has partnered up with The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) in a fight against cancer.


Yasmani and his wife Heather recently had a close friend named Bailey become diagnosed with Stage 4 Hodgkin lymphoma. To show support for Bailey and the more than 1.2 million people in the United States who are living with, or in remission from, leukemia, lymphoma or myeloma, the Grandals decided to take action.
In an effort to raise money for the cause, Yasmani Grandal has released a limited edition shirt that he has co-designed with Athletes Brand. The shirt is being sold at until Monday July 3, 2017. The proceeds from the shirt sales will be going toward raising awareness of blood cancers and supporting the week of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
The shirt features a catcher’s mask with Yasmani’s nickname, Yaz.

As of now, the Shirt For A Cause campaign is very close to their $2,000 goal. The link to the t-shirt can be found at here.

Through LLS’s Random Acts of Light, Yasmani Grandal hosted a young fan and leukemia survivor named Rafael. He and his family came to Dodger Stadium for a meet and greet on the field before Monday night’s game.


Rafael talked about his experience with Yasmani Grandal at Dodger Stadium Monday night and how he is thankful that Grandal is supporting LLS.

Be someone to make a difference and help Yasmani Grandal, Athletes Brand and many others attempting to support LLS!
