12/7/16: The Lymphomaniac Society has been in existence for just more than one year. Read about the cancer survivors who have benefited from respite trips provided by the organization in our first end-of-the-year report (above).

4/27/16: The Lymphomaniac Society was the April recipient of the KATV Spirit of Arkansas award sponsored by Little Rock law firm Rainwater, Holt, and Sexton. The award "recognizes exceptional local organizations that make Arkansas a better place to live." We were featured in a segment on KATV. We also received a cash donation from the law firm to help fund more trips for cancer survivors.

The Lymphomaniac Society is excited to announce we're the recipients of a mini-grant from the Arkansas Blue Cross Blue Shield Blue and You Foundation. This grant will help us fund one full trip for a cancer survivor and their caregiver.

106.7 The Ride announced as media partner

The Lymphomaniac Society is proud to announce 106.7 The Ride as an official media partner. The Ride is Little Rock's home for new country music with great on-air hosts and lots of fun events. We look forward to partnering with The Ride, appearing on-air to promote upcoming events, and telling listeners how to donate or apply for LS trips.

"We're so excited to have The Ride join our team as a media partner," said Elizabeth Fortune, Lymphomaniac Society president. "This is such a positive time for our organization as we grow and provide more trips to cancer survivors. We look forward to letting listeners know how they can support cancer survivors."

We'll keep you updated when we're on the station so you can tune in!

Lymphomaniac Society participating in 2016 ArkansasGives

Mark your calendars for an exciting giving event Thursday, April 7. The Lymphomaniac Society is excited to participate in the 2016 Arkansas Gives event. ArkansasGives.org is a 12-hour giving event sponsored by the Arkansas Community Foundation. The online event is Thursday, April 7. During this day of giving, Arkansans make donations on a single day in recognition of the vital work of local charitable organizations. As a special incentive to give, each gift made through ArkansasGives on April 7 will be matched with additional bonus dollars; the more you give, the more bonus dollars the Lymphomaniac Society will receive.

We’re in the process of planning four trips with two applicants waiting for trips so ArkansasGives is a great opportunity for us to raise some funds to provide meaningful and memorable trips.

Our founders, Elizabeth and Griffin, recently traveled to Cincinnati to meet Elizabeth's bone marrow donor. Local NBC affiliate WLWT was there to capture the moment Elizabeth met her donor, Amanda, for the first time.

The story subsequently aired on the Little Rock NBC affiliate, KARK.
