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.
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 AthletesBrand.com 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.
Last night @yazmaniandvl treated Honored Hero and leukemia survivor Rafael and his family to a VIP pre-game experience thanks to The @leukemialymphomasociety’s (LLS) #RandomActsofLight project. #RandomActsOfLight is a movement to surprise people touched by blood cancers to help brighten their lives during a dark time, and create awareness for patients’ critical needs.
