Cadets's Students of the Year Fundraiser

Jan 21, 2021

We, Teagan Cavaliere and Mark Cronin, are determined to raise $15,000 for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. As co-candidates for “Students of the Year,” our team (Cadets Curing Cancer) is competing against other fundraising teams throughout the New Haven/Hartford region to raise the most money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS). 100% of the money raised for LLS will be used to fund research and treatments for blood cancers, including leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease, and myeloma. The money raised will also be used to help improve the quality of life for these patients and their families.  Our team, “Cadets Curing Cancer” can accept donations between January 21 and March 10. No amount is too large or too small! Your generosity will undoubtedly improve the lives of every patient and family affected by blood cancers! Thank you! 


Our Mission

Jan 18, 2021

Hello all!

In two days, on January 21, our team will begin accepting donations! Although we are under tough times, the cause that LLS funds and supports is very important to us. 

In 2018, Mark lost a great uncle to Leukemia, and Teagon also sadly lost a cousin back in 2014. Another reason this year is important to donate over any year in the past is the ongoing pandemic and how it is affecting blood cancer patients across the USA, both medically and financially. 

We are both extremely passionate about this cause, and we hope you are too, as all of our donations will directly benefit the lives of blood cancer patients.

Thank you for visiting my fundraising page, welcome!

I encourage you to join me in supporting The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) by making a donation to my fundraising campaign. By donating to LLS, you support the many facets of LLS’s mission work from investing in groundbreaking research, providing education and support to patients, and advocating at the state and federal level for legislation to help those living with cancer. My appreciation for your support cannot be overstated — each and every dollar donated to LLS brings us closer to our goal to end blood cancer and makes an impact for cancer patients and their families.

As a global leader in the fight to end cancer, LLS is committed to doing more for blood cancer patients and families than any organization in the world. LLS’s signature fundraising campaigns drive critical support for its mission, including a nearly $1.3 billion investment in cutting edge cancer research worldwide since it was founded in 1949. Since the 1960s, survival rates for many blood cancer patients have doubled, tripled, or even quadrupled.

Every facet of LLS’s mission – research, education and support, and policy and advocacy – work in harmony to put blood cancer patients and their families first. LLS has helped millions impacted by cancer throughout its more than 70-year history, even funding breakthrough blood cancer research to advance lifesaving treatments and cures that is now helping patients with other cancers and diseases. That is why at LLS we say that beating cancer is in our blood.

Please visit my website as often as you can and share it with everyone you know who would also like to join us in the fight against cancer. Together, we have the power, the passion and the resolve to achieve a world without blood cancer. All donations are tax-deductible.

On behalf of cancer patients and their families everywhere, I sincerely thank you for your support!
