Andrew's Student Visionaries of the Year Fundraiser

Feb 15, 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.


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.

This year Ive join parts with LLS to support and fight the cause of blood cancer.  I joined LLS to help create a change in our world today for all patients who deal with blood cancer and especially to honor my freshman year teacher Mrs Smith. During my freshman year she told us many stories of her experience. Through her stories it gave me a bright insight in the world we live in today. Her stories has made me a much more insightful person to seek out the problems which is luring above our world today.

During LLS I've been working on my confindence by talking to businesses friends and more to help donate to this cause. I've also been much more patient at times to slow things down, so I can do a much better job.  LLS's support has brought so much to me as a person this year and now it is my time to do my work to fight against blood cancer! 


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!


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!
