Each year, the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society recognizes the outstanding efforts of the print media, digital media, radio broadcasters and television through its National Media Awards.
The awards were established to recognize the significant role of the media in the promotion and advocacy of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
The Palm Beach Area chapter of LLS nominated Alpha Media Group and Reginald Dee of X102.3, a local rhythm-and-blues FM station, for the National Radio Media Award. During September, which was also Blood Cancer Awareness Month, Alpha Media Group and Dee were awarded this honor because of their record of excellence in promotional support, fundraising, and in educating and informing the public about LLS and its mission.
“LLS exists to find cures and ensure access to treatments for blood cancer patients, and through the support of Alpha Media Group and Reginald Dee, we have become closer than ever in making someday, today,” said Pamela Payne, executive director of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Palm Beach Area Chapter.
The efforts of X102.3 have directly affected the nonprofit’s mission to cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and myeloma, and improve the quality of life of patients and their families.
Founded in 1949 and headquartered in New York, LLS has chapters throughout the U.S. and Canada. To learn more, visit www.lls.org.
