Conner's Student Visionaries of the Year Fundraiser

Jan 26, 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.


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!

My reason for fundrasining: 

Being nominated as a condidate this year is incredibly important to me. I personally have had my life affected by cancer in many ways. My family memebrs including my aunt Stepanie who is also my godmother having breat cancer twice and my deceased Grandfather paasing away from cancer. These events completely changed my life and I saw first hand how much this devastates families and people's lives. So in rasing money for LLS's research I personally am aiming to help that one day in the future, cancer never has to effects peoples lives the way it once did to my whole family.
