ARLINGTON, Va. (WDVM) — A husband and wife are aiming to raise $420,000 to fight blood cancers, and a local Arlington clothing store is helping them reach that goal.
Frank Lusko and his wife, Elaina Enjetti, are leading a Man and Woman of the Year campaign for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
The team partnered with local clothing store South Moon Under for a fundraiser on Sunday to hit their goal.
Cancer is no stranger to Lusko and his family. His brother, Steve, passed away 20 years ago from the disease. While he can’t bring his brother back, Lusko is aiming to make a difference, so those with cancer today can have a fighting chance.
“That’s why I’m here today is to celebrate my brother’s passing over twenty years ago. I think that, who knows, things could have been different for him if it happened to him today because of the advances that we’ve made,” said Lusko.
10% of all sales from the fundraiser will be donated to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Lusko is aiming to raise the funds in a total of 10 weeks.
