LeukemiaTexas appoints new CEO, Mandy Hamilton-O'Neill

LeukemiaTexas, a nonprofit organization dedicated to fighting the life-threatening blood cancer of leukemia through research and patient aid, recently appointed Mandy Hamilton-O’Neill as Chief Executive Officer.

Before joining LeukemiaTexas, Mandy worked nearly 15 years in the nonprofit sector, leading small and large non-profits, such as the American Heart Association and MADD, focusing on education, health, equality, and victim’s rights. She has been responsible for executing stimulating programs and substantial revenue generation to exceed organizational goals across the country which has resulted in close to $20 million dollars for these organizations.

“I am honored to lead an organization whose mission is so critical, financially supports patients in our great state, and has a dedicated team who works daily to eradicate this disease,” Mandy said. “For close to half a century, LeukemiaTexas has been the leader in improving the lives of those with leukemia and supporting research in Texas and we will continue to champion our cause.”

Mandy currently serves her community as a member of the Women’s Auxiliary of Children’s Medical Center of Dallas, a member of the Auxiliary of the Genesis Women’s Shelter, volunteer for the Kilgore College Rangerette Alumni organization, an official ambassador for the American Stroke Association, a certified Victim Advocate for MADD, and a Big Sister in the Big Brothers Big Sisters program. In 2008, Mandy was selected as one of Dallas’ 10 most beautiful women by D Magazine, who also quoted her as “a non-profit’s dream,” noting her appreciation and love to give back.

Mandy is a member of many professional organizations, including the Association of Fundraising Professionals and National Association of Female Executives.
