The Lymphomaniac 70’s Party has grown to be one of the area’s best parties and fundraisers. Landry is a Hodgkin’s Lymphoma survivor of the EJGH Oncology Program and is the Lymphomaniac founding member. Landry, who has been in remission since 1996, decided in 2002 to hold a party with the help of friends and family in order to raise awareness and money for local cancer non-profit organizations.
