Ella Richardson | The CUREageous

Ella's Students of the Year Fundraiser

Jan 02, 2021

Thank you for visiting my fundraising page, welcome!

My name is Ella Richardson and I am so honored to help raise money for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) as a team member on team CUREageous. I chose to join my friend Eva's team to support her and to support those affected by cancer. I have seen how deeply cancer can affect the lives of people with cancer and the lives of those around them, so I want to do anything I can to help.

I encourage you to join me in supporting The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) by making a donation to my fundraising campaign. By donating to LLS, you support the many facets of LLS’s mission work from investing in groundbreaking research, providing education and support to patients, and advocating at the state and federal level for legislation to help those living with cancer. My appreciation for your support cannot be overstated — each and every dollar donated to LLS brings us closer to our goal to end blood cancer and makes an impact for cancer patients and their families.

As a global leader in the fight to end cancer, LLS is committed to doing more for blood cancer patients and families than any organization in the world. LLS’s signature fundraising campaigns drive critical support for its mission, including a nearly $1.3 billion investment in cutting edge cancer research worldwide since it was founded in 1949. Since the 1960s, survival rates for many blood cancer patients have doubled, tripled, or even quadrupled.

Every facet of LLS’s mission – research, education and support, and policy and advocacy – work in harmony to put blood cancer patients and their families first. LLS has helped millions impacted by cancer throughout its more than 70-year history, even funding breakthrough blood cancer research to advance lifesaving treatments and cures that is now helping patients with other cancers and diseases. That is why at LLS we say that beating cancer is in our blood.

Please visit my website as often as you can and share it with everyone you know who would also like to join us in the fight against cancer. Together, we have the power, the passion and the resolve to achieve a world without blood cancer. All donations are tax-deductible.

On behalf of cancer patients and their families everywhere, I sincerely thank you for your support!

    Ella, thank you so much for raising awareness of this dreadful cancer. To those we love and have courageously conquered the cancer battle and to those we love and sadly miss every day who did everything with the help of families, friends, and all of the tireless working medical professionals--a heartfelt thanks and there is always something every day that reminds me of everybody who helps, everybody who cares, and everybody who loves.
