Student Visionaries of the Year South Bay

Connie Lim | Team Answer for Cancer

Connie's Student Visionaries of the Year Fundraiser

Feb 21, 2023


Dear Friends and Family,  

I had the privilege of being nominated as a candidate for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) South Bay Student Visionaries of the Year campaign. Student Visionaries of the Year is a seven-week leadership development program that runs from February 21st, 2023 to April 14th, 2023 to raise money and help support the LLS mission to cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin's disease and myeloma, and improve the quality of life of patients and their families.   

I have created a team called Answer for Cancer with committed friends and family to partner with me on this journey. Together, we have set a fundraising goal of $25,000, and have chosen research as the LLS mission pillar to represent throughout our campaign.  

Money raised helps LLS, the largest nonprofit dedicated to creating a world without blood cancers, advance initiatives like funding cutting-edge research and treatments. LLS has invested more than $1.5 billion in cancer research since 1949, leading to breakthroughs in immunotherapy, genomics, and personalized medicine that are improving and saving patients’ lives. LLS has saved 350,000 lives globally and has helped advance more than 70% of the 110 blood cancer treatment options approved by the FDA. 

As cancer is one of the most common causes of death with 609,360 deaths in 2022, many people around the world suffer from various types of cancer. Despite these depressing statistics, we still do not have a definite cure at the moment. To help bring back joy and happiness to cancer patients, scientists have found out ways to stop breast cancer and to target a cancer’s energy supply in 2022. My campaign will provide support to the critical work of LLS in hopes that one day no one will have to grow up without the ones they love. I know that with your contribution, I can reach my goal and make a direct impact in the fight against blood cancers and help support cancer research.

I thank you in advance for partnering with a campaign so close to my heart, and please remember, every bit counts. All donations are tax-deductible. I appreciate your support.
