LocalShops1 shopper member & friend Susan Hausler is one of only four women in the United States who is nominated to represent the Southeast in the first All Stars Women of the Year for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
The All Stars campaign is a competition to raise funds to help blood cancer patients live longer and more fulfilling lives. Susan first became involved with the nonprofit's Suncoast chapter in Tampa after her father passed away from leukemia in 1991.
In 2003, she was nominated as a candidate for "Woman of the Year" and won the local title, raising just under $40,000, the most ever raised by a candidate in Tampa at that time. Since then Susan has remained actively involved, helping raise more than $200,000 for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Susan dedicates her All Star campaign to her mother and father, both of whom died from cancer.
