Melanie Romanaux of Roswell has been named as a candidate for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) Man & Woman of the Year campaign.

Romanaux joins other community leaders to see who can raise the most money for the organization within a ten week time period starting on Wednesday, April 2.

Money raised during the campaign will advance the organization's mission to cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin's disease and myeloma and improve the quality of life of patients and their families.

Romanaux is the founder and CEO of Somedia Solutions, Inc. She was the top fundraiser for the LLS’ Light The Night Walk North Metro in 2012 and 2013. She hosts events and donates her professional social media services to Team Stick it 2 Cancer and Team Somedia.

She is married to Randy Romanaux and they have a mini Australian Shepherd. Melanie enjoys hiking with friends and growing her own food.

“I know that I will see the cure for blood cancer in my lifetime," Romanaux said. "I can give my time, energy and expertise in events and social media to help make that happen. I hope to spread the word about LLS, the incredible things that their research is doing, and how they are saving lives every day."

Romanaux dedicates her campaign to her competitive cheerleading coach, Nicole Cumberland, who lost her battle with leukemia 15 years ago. Every dollar each candidate raises counts as one vote.

The candidates with the most votes will be awarded the titles 2014 Man & 
Woman of the Year, respectively. The event hopes to raise $625,000.

Over 600 people are expected to attend the Grand Finale Celebration at Loews Atlanta hotel on June 14. The event begins with a silent auction and reception, followed by the event program and dinner.

Roswell residents can visit the website to attend or donate to Romanaux's campaign.
