Addison's Student Visionaries of the Year Fundraiser

Jan 12, 2024

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.


I am currently a senior in high school, aiming to be in medicine/healthcare in the future. As someone whose family was deeply affected by the loss of a dear family member due to blood cancer, I dream of living in a world where no one has to deal with that grief ever again. That is why this year, I am so proud to be a part of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) Student Visionaries of the Year Campaign, where I will be working to raise as much money as possible for LLS's mission. 

LLS fund's cutting-edge research in blood cancer education, supports blood cancer patients and families, and helps thousands of advocates to drive policy chances that break down inequities in healthcare.

With your help and donation, my dream of a blood cancer-free world can be one step closer to reality. All donations are greatly appreciated and tax-deductible, so please consider donating and spreading the word to others!

On behalf of anyone affected by blood cancer, thank you.
