Mira's Student Visionaries of the Year Fundraiser

Jan 19, 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. 

I'm a junior at New Trier High School. I got involved with LLS because my grandma passed away from Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma. My first event with LLS was Light the Night in October 2023, and this organization immediately stood out to me, and I began to look for more opportunities to get more involved with LLS. I became a student visionary in hopes to raise money for research in blood cancers in order to lower the mortality rates in blood cancers. The research portion of this campaign interested me the most because I am interested in a pre-med track in college and research is a big part of medicine that directly helps find cures and causes. In hopes of money for research, I plan to help find causes and cures for Leukemia, Lymphoma, and Myeloma.


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!
