In February, Ft. Thomas native Jamie Baker was featured in a Street Class article chronicling her battle with Leukemia. Baker is a survivor of Acute Myelogenous Leukemia, and is currently campaigning to become the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society's (LLS) Woman of the Year. In order to be crowned Woman of the Year, Baker must embark on a fundraising campaign. You can help out Baker's campaign as well as donate to LLS by attending events throughout the area. The following events are posted on her fundraising page:
