Student Visionaries of the Year Chicago

Zoha's Student Visionaries of the Year Fundraiser

Jan 20, 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.

Hi! My name is Zoha Pala, and I'm currently a sophomore at Adlai E. Stevenson High School. My goal with this campaign is to create a change and work to raise as much as I can for Leukemia and Lymphoma Society's cause! I hope to do my best to have an impact on those with blood cancer, blood cancer survivors, and their families. Ever since I was little, I've had an interest in medicine and being able to use that knowledge to help others in the future. I believe that Student Visionaries of the Year is an amazing opportunity for me to learn more about LLS, make a difference, and gain experience grow as someone interested in the medical field! I'm so excited and grateful to make a change! 


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!
