Larry Michael, Voice of the Washington Redskins, on Monday received a lifetime achievement award from the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society at the Ryan Kerrigan Leukemia Golf Classic at Lansdowne Resort in Leesburg, Va.

He is pictured above with his award alongside Sherry Gruden, wife of Redskins head coach Jay Gruden.

"We all know Larry's role as the Voice of the Redskins, but to see first-hand his passion for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society — and for finding a cure for this awful disease — I can't say enough," Kerrigan said. "The LLS and those affected by leukemia worldwide are better for having Larry on their side. This award is very well deserved."

Michael has been working closely with the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society for several years now, as he's been the honorary chair for recent tournaments including this year's.

Each Leukemia Golf Classic features patient hero, whose story serves as an inspiration and as the direct meaning behind the tournament: to find a cure for leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin's disease and myeloma and to improve the quality of life for patients and their families.

This year's patient hero is leukemia survivor Anthony Mewborn, 9, a huge Redskins fan who was diagnosed with PH ALL on July 12, 2011, and completed chemo on April 27, 2014.
