Gospel music legend and recording label founder Dr. Leonard Scott presents a check to Elissa Evernham, Director of Special Events for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) Indianapolis office.
The donation was raised from the kick-off concert for Dr. Scott’s 13th album Greatness of Your Love (Tyscot Music & Entertainment) that features the radio hit “God’s Spirit.” The album has been submitted in the Special Event category of the forthcoming 31st annual Stellar Gospel Music Awards ceremony.
Dr. Leaonard Scott donated all of the proceeds of the release event to LLS. He began to work with the society when his daughter Melody was diagnosed with leukemia in 2013.
“The type of leukemia Melanie had was incurable short of a direct miracle from God or a bone marrow transplant,” Dr. Scott recalls. “There was no match for her in the bone marrow registry, but due to research a new technique was discovered using an umbilical cord from a new born baby and now Melanie is well again. I believe other new cures for blood cancers can be discovered and someone else’s life can be saved. I ran for Man of the Year for the LLS to help raise money for curing blood cancers.”
