Alana's Student Visionaries of the Year Fundraiser

Dec 30, 2022

Visionaries look to the future — and see infinite possibility.
They challenge the status quo — and make the impossible possible.
They boldly imagine a better world — and lead the charge to create it.


The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society was built on that same vision of a better world, one without blood cancers.


​​​​​​​This year, I’m proud to be a part of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) Student Visionaries of the Year Campaign, working to raise as much as possible for LLS’s mission. 


As a global leader in the fight against blood cancer, LLS:

  • Funds cutting-edge research leading to breakthroughs in immunotherapy, genomics, and personalized medicine that are improving and saving the lives of patients
  • Provides free education and support for blood cancer patients and families, including personalized, one-on-one support, assistance with identifying and enrolling in clinical trials, and more
  • Mobilizes thousands of advocates to drive policy changes that accelerate the development of new cancer treatments and break down barriers to care

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 at least $80,000 and have chosen research as the LLS mission pillar to represent throughout our campaign.


By partcipating in SVOY, I would like to raise more awareness about cancer and the research being done to find cures. My fundraising is going to help because it will serve as a reminder for many people that cancer exists in every string of connections, whether that be through family, friends, friends of friends, or personally. In some way, we are all affected by this disease and therefore should all be involved in fighting it.  ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​


Please consider joining this fight by making a donation. All donations are greatly appreciated and tax-deductible. Please visit my website often and tell friends who would also like to donate! 


Thanks to your support, my efforts will help ensure this generation is the last to see cancer.

On behalf of blood cancer patients everywhere, thank you!
