“Thanks to leaders like Alejandro Mendieta, LLS is creating a new world where hundreds of thousands of people diagnosed with blood cancers are today leading normal, productive lives,” said DeAnn Hazey, CFRE, Executive Director. “Funds raised for LLS accelerate new treatments and healing therapies once thought impossible, as well as provides co-pay and travel assistance to the patients and families who need our help locally.”

He was recently promoted in January of 2018 as their Managing Partner and was recognized as the 2017 Managing Director of the Year and 2017 Overall Financial Advisor and Financial Planner of the year.
