Sofia's Student Visionaries of the Year Fundraiser

Jan 28, 2023

My name is Sofia Grimm and I am a Student Visionary of the Year candidate for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I am honored to have the opportunity to participate in this program and make a difference in the fight against cancer.

My grandfather suffered from cancer while he was alive. His experience made me realize the importance of finding a cure for cancer and providing support to those affected by it.

I hope that by fundraising and raising awareness, we can make progress in the fight against cancer and ensure that no one ever has to lose a loved one to this devastating disease. With your support, I am confident that we can make a real difference and bring hope to those battling against cancer.

Please join the fight against cancer by donating today!


This is me!

Sofia's Student Visionaries of the Year Fundraiser

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.


I am a visionary; I have a vision for a world without cancer, but I need your help.


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.

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!


​​​​​​​Please also consider follow @togetheragainstcancer2023 on Instagram to get real-time updates on our fundraising initatives.


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!

    My wonderful, thoughtful, intelligent nephew, Michael, was diagnosed with Stage 4 Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma in his mid-20’s. He, along with his amazing medical team, fought hard against this terrible disease. He has been cancer-free for over 5 years. My hope, my wish is for everyone battling cancer to have chance for proper treatment and care and for a cure to be discovered to eradicate these diseases.
