Student Visionaries of the Year Westchester/Fairfield

Charlotte Overs | Team Crusaders to Conquer Cancer

Signing up to save lives!

Jan 25, 2024

I am Charlotte Overs, a junior at Ridgefield High School. I signed up to save lives for my Grandpa who has been bravely and successfully battling lymphoma! One of my other family members was battling lymphoma but is now in remission due to a clinical trial he was able to take part in. I am very exited to help many more people hear the word remission through the work LLS is doing to find a cure for blood cancers! I hope that what my team can do this year can help even one more person hear the word remission. 


Charlotte's Student Visionaries of the Year Fundraiser

Nov 08, 2023

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!
