Students of the Year Fresno

Holden Beecher | Holden Beecher's Campaign Team

Welcome to Holden Beecher's SOY Fundraising Page!

Feb 15, 2019

As some of you may know last year my brother, Ryan Beecher, was diagnosed with non-Hodgkins lymphoma. The experience was a shock, but Ryan stayed strong and displayed the greatest strength and willpower I have ever seen. Nowadays Ryan is back on the football field, but if there's one thing I've learned from his experience it's the vast impact cancer has on not only my community but the world. Beginning to understand how many lives are impacted by blood cancers truly inspires me to campaign for Student of The Year and hopefully get one step closer to defeating blood cancers entirely. Here's a link to an NBC story giving a bit more information on Ryan's experience and return to football.

I am honored to participate in the 2019 Students of the Year program, a seven-week initiative in which select high school students from around the country participate in a fundraising competition to benefit The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I am proud to be raising critical dollars in honor of a young patient hero who is currently battling or is in remission from a blood cancer. Each dollar is a vote. The candidate team that raises the most money at the end of the seven weeks is named Student(s) of the Year. Our mission is to not only raise the most money but also to bring attention to blood cancers like leukemia, which is the most common form of cancer in children and teens.

We really are changing the face of blood cancer!

All donations are greatly appreciated and are tax deductible. They'll not only support LLS-funded research but will help provide critical information and support for patients, and support advocacy for laws to ensure patients can access the care and treatments they need.

Please visit our website often and bring friends who would also like to donate!

On behalf of blood cancer patients everywhere, thank you for your support!
