Students of the Year Austin
Evie Smartt | Team Evie
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?
Unfortuately, each of our lives has been touched by some type of cancer. A few years ago, my grandmother was diagnosed with liposarcoma. She was one of the most amazing people I ever knew, She never met a stranger and treated everyone like they were family. Before her diagnosis, she was super active and very healthy, which made her diagnosis hard and confusing for my family and me. My grandmother was a fighter. She worked hard at everything she did in life, and that drive did not stop with her diagnosis. Sadly, I lost my grandmother to her cancer in March of 2019, and I hope through this campaign we help to advance cancer research.
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.
