Students of the Year Phoenix
Ella Vitti | Coast 2 Coast Cures SOY
Hello! Thank you for visiting my LLS Student of the Year fundraising page. My name is Ella Vitti and I am honored to be a candidate for the Coast 2 Coast Cures team, along side my fellow candidates: Sammy Field and Lauren Yeung. Student of the Year is a 7 week long campaign where different teams of high schoolers compete to raise the most money for blood cancers, with the main purpose of spreading the word and helping patients in need. I am a Sophomore and I attend Arcadia High School. I spend most of my free time at yoga, dance or playing tennis. Alongside a few of my friends I started and I am one of the presidents of a club at my school that helps the homeless by giving out bags filled with helpful supplies. I also did a program where I volunteered at the Humane Society which is an organization that cares for animals in need, this was an amazing experience! I am very engaged in my community and want to do anything I can to help. LLS is an amazing organization that saves lives every minute. It is the largest nonprofit dedicated to creating a world without blood cancers. Since 1949, LLS has invested nearly $1.3 billion in groundbreaking research, pioneering many of today’s most innovative approaches. By donating you will not only be funding research and care for patients, but also be supporting families that are going through this heart breaking experience. The main reason I am partaking in this life changing experience is because my grandpa was diagnosed with Lymphoma years ago and luckily survived it and my great aunt died from Leukemia. These were both horrible tragedies and showed me how blood cancer affects lives. Anything you donate will help and make a huge difference!
