Students of the Year Fresno
Emmy Gutierrez | Kick Cancer
Hi my name is Emerance Gutierrez, I am a candidate for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) Students of the Year campaign. In this campaign I am in a race to raise the most money for cancer research. LLS is the leading force in blood cancer treatments. For instance, in 1964 a child’s chance of surviving ALL was 3%. Today, with LLS’s role in advances in treatments, the survival rate is 96%!! I want to help continue this life saving research and improve the quality of life of patients and their families. I am doing this campaign because I am a cancer survivor myself.
I had Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia at the age of three and remained in treatment for two years, but I am now 8 years cancer free going on 9, on December 21! I am also doing this because I have been an Honored Hero for the LLS Students of the Year campaign and I have seen all the amazing work the candidates do. Also from experience, I have seen first hand how much LLS truly helps people all across the nation.
My main goal for this event is 50,000 dollars but my stretch goal is 500,000. I am asking for your donation and/or sponsorship to my campaign and help me reach my goal and help millions of people all around the world. You can make a donation in any amount and mail a check payable to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society to 1905 Shasta Drive, Atwater Ca. 95301. Please note, Emmy Gutierrez Kick Cancer in the memo section of the check. You can also make an online donation by clicking "Donate Today" on the left hand side of your screen.
Thank you for your donation and time.
