LIVONIA, Mich. – A competition across Metro Detroit looks to find who can raise the most money for charity.
Michelle Nixon’s husband was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia when their youngest son was 6-months-old. The family worked together to help so Michelle could focus on her husband’s health. Nearly 18 months later, he was given a clean bill of health in March.
She was nominated by the The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society to campaign for its Man & Woman of the Year award.
It is a blind competition that ends May 13.
The family is doing a safe, low-contact donation drive-thru to make it easy for those in Metro Detroit to donate. Along with money, the family is collecting returnables as donations.
