Martinez resident Greg Oldham, real estate agent with Meybohm, was named the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society 2019 Man of the Year in the Augusta area after generating a record-setting $228,755 for the local chapter.
“This race was truly one in which there were no losers,” Oldham says. “The campaign shows the power and impact that individuals can make. In the end, raising money was easy. Fighting cancer is hard.”
Oldham and fellow Man and Woman of the Year winners from across the nation were recognized in Forbes magazine by the society, which advocates for patients by funding targeted and immunotherapy research and by ensuring that blood cancer patients have access to life-saving treatments.
In addition, Oldham has been invited to attend the “2020 Vision: Transformative Advances in Blood Cancer” panel discussion in New York next year.
