Meredith's Student Visionaries of the Year Fundraiser

Nov 13, 2023


My family has had history with cancer. My Grandma Ann had kidney cancer and died. My mom had breast cancer and survived. My sister Bethie had leukemia when she was 3. She even had to get a stem cell transplant and was in the hospital for 42 days straight  but she managed to survive. Then 2-3 years ago she was a candidate for SVoY, and a year after she was the Honored Hero for the next round of candidates. I don’t remember any of it but I’m happy Bethie survived because we both know how much we love each other. I also admire her for all she’s done and gone through. With that being said I want to continue what bethie started by  helping LLS with stopping cancer for good in honor of not just Bethie but my mom and Grandma Ann as well. Even though breast and kidney cancer aren’t leukemia they’re still a type of cancer and should be stopped as well as leukemia. Life will be better once cancer is stopped once and for all.


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!


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!
