KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Every year, the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society holds their "Man and Woman of the Year" fundraising contest. People from the community are nominated to participate. Nurse Danny Loental is one of the 2016 participants and Danny said he hopes to raise $50,000 by the time the contest concludes. The pediatric oncology nurse said he set the bar high because if he meets the goal of $50,000, he has the opportunity decide which field of research the money goes to. Danny said he would choose pediatric cancer research because that is the field he works in.  Click here for the full list of events Danny is hosting or just to donate.
