Students of the Year Austin
Adeline Jansson | Team Adeline's Allies
My name is Adeline Jansson, and I am a freshman at Georgetown High School. I am also a cancer fighter. In April of 2020, I was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia with Aberrant Myeloid Markers and Monosomy 7. I battled this incredibly rare form of leukemia until I reached remission in September of 2020. But the battle didn’t stop there. Even though I am in remission, I have had to endure NG tubes, debilitating neuropathy in my legs (which has given me lasting nerve damage), chemo-induced diabetes, spinal fluid leaks, and many relapse scares. Today, I am still in remission and will continue to take chemo until September of 2022. It is because of the love and support of the community around me that I found the strength to fight. And now, I have the opportunity to give back to kids just like me.
Welcome To My Fundraising Page.
I have signed up to save lives with the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) and am working to raise as much as possible over the next 7 weeks. Every dollar raised counts as one vote for my campaign. The candidate(s) whose team tallies the most votes earns the prestigious title of Student or Students of the Year. Will you help me earn that title?
As you know, everyone wins when cancer loses. Thanks to your support, my efforts will help fund therapies and treatments that are saving lives. Over the years, support from people like you has been responsible for the blood cancer advancements that have doubled, tripled, and in some cases quadrupled the survival rate for some blood cancers.
Many LLS-supported therapies not only help blood cancer patients but are also now used to treat patients with rare forms of stomach and skin cancers and are in clinical trials for patients with lung, brain, breast, pancreatic and prostate cancers. And LLS-funded drugs like targeted therapies and immunotherapies are now saving thousands of lives every day.
We really are getting close to our goal of a world without blood cancers!
All donations are greatly appreciated and tax-deductible. They'll not only support LLS research, but patient services, advocacy, public and professional education, and community services as well.
Please visit my website often and tell friends who would also like to donate!
On behalf of blood cancer patients everywhere, thank you for your support! For more information about LLS, please visit www.lls.org
