Dylan Bell & Family's Students of the Year Fundraiser

Jan 15, 2021

Thank you for visiting my fundraising page, welcome!

I encourage you to join me in supporting The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) by making a donation to my fundraising campaign. By donating to LLS, you support the many facets of LLS’s mission work from investing in groundbreaking research, providing education and support to patients, and advocating at the state and federal level for legislation to help those living with cancer. My appreciation for your support cannot be overstated — each and every dollar donated to LLS brings us closer to our goal to end blood cancer and makes an impact for cancer patients and their families.

Like so many others, my life has been affected by cancer. One of my maternal great-grandmothers lost her battle with multiple myeloma before I had an opportunity to meet her. My paternal grandmother is a breast cancer survivor. Most recently, the varsity football coach at my high school (St.Francis High School in La Cañada, CA), Coach Jim Bonds, passed away after a second battle against multiple myeloma. My older brother Devan played for Coach Bonds. My younger brother Dustin and I were looking forward to doing the same. The 2020 season was going to be my first varsity season playing for Coach Bonds, but it was not to be. Thanks to my friend Mayze, I have the opportunity to honor Coach Bonds by being a part of a team that is honoring Coach Bonds’ legacy by raising money for cancer research.

As a global leader in the fight to end cancer, LLS is committed to doing more for blood cancer patients and families than any organization in the world. LLS’s signature fundraising campaigns drive critical support for its mission, including a nearly $1.3 billion investment in cutting edge cancer research worldwide since it was founded in 1949. Since the 1960s, survival rates for many blood cancer patients have doubled, tripled, or even quadrupled.

Every facet of LLS’s mission – research, education and support, and policy and advocacy – work in harmony to put blood cancer patients and their families first. LLS has helped millions impacted by cancer throughout its more than 70-year history, even funding breakthrough blood cancer research to advance lifesaving treatments and cures that is now helping patients with other cancers and diseases. That is why at LLS we say that beating cancer is in our blood.

Please visit my website as often as you can and share it with everyone you know who would also like to join us in the fight against cancer. Together, we have the power, the passion and the resolve to achieve a world without blood cancer. All donations are tax-deductible.

On behalf of cancer patients and their families everywhere, I sincerely thank you for your support!
