Camden's Student Visionaries of the Year Fundraiser

Feb 20, 2023


Dear Friends and Family, 

I had the privilege of being nominated as a candidate for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) Greater Los Angeles Student Visionaries of the Year campaign. Student Visionaries of the Year is a seven-week leadership development program that runs from February 21st to April 14th 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 am excited to announce that I have accepted my candidacy and I am writing today to ask for your support of my campaign.

With the support of my mom, I have created a team of committed friends and family to partner with me on this journey. Together, we have set a fundraising goal of $50,000, 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.

A few years ago, I found out that my cousin who is only a year younger than me had been diagnosed with Leukemia. Thankfully he is now in remission, but it was a long and difficult road for him and his family. This made me want to find a way to help people with cancer, and I know that research is key to better outcomes for anyone impacted by blood cancer. 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 help, I can reach my goal and make a direct impact in the fight against blood cancers.


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.

Camden Shapiro
