Connecticut Westchester Hudson Valley Students of the Year

Susan Arredondo

Welcome to Susan Arrendondo's Fundraising Page!

Feb 15, 2017

I am honored to be fundraising for the 2017 Students of the Year program, a seven-week initiative in which select high school students from around the country participate in a fundraising competition to benefit The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I am raising critical dollars in honor of a young patient hero who is currently battling or is in remission from a blood cancer. Each dollar is a vote. The candidate team who raises the most money between January 26th, 2017 and March 10th, 2017 is named Student of the Year. My mission is to not only raise the most money but also to bring attention to blood cancers like leukemia, which is the number one killer of children under the age of 20.

Since the early 1960s, five-year survival rates for many blood cancer patients have doubled, tripled or even quadrupled. And many LLS supported therapies not only help blood cancer patients but are now approved to treat patients with rare forms of stomach and skin cancers, and noncancerous diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis and other autoimmune diseases.  They're even being tested in clinical trials for patients with a range of cancers including lung, brain, breast, pancreatic and prostate cancers, and noncancerous diseases such as diabetes and lupus.  

We really are changing the face of blood cancer!

All donations are greatly appreciated and are tax deductible. They'll not only support LLS-funded research but patient services, advocacy, public and professional education, and community services as well.

Please visit our website often and bring friends who would also like to donate!

On behalf of blood cancer patients everywhere I thank you for your support!
