About Dancing On The Valentine

Producer Jenny George was diagnosed with leukemia at age 12, given less than 30 days to live, and told that she would never be able to have children. Jenny beat the odds and has been cancer-free for over 20 years. She credits her love of music (especially Duran Duran) for helping her through her illness and recovery. She went on to become both a mother and an advocate for cancer research and treatment.

Jenny established Dancing On The Valentine in 2004 in celebration of  another year of life. Held annually on or around Valentine’s Day (Jenny’s birthday), all proceeds from the DOTV donated in person to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.

Dancing on the Valentine has raised close to $65,000 on behalf of the LLS to date; Jenny hopes to add another $10,000 to that figure in 2018.
