For those of you I've talked with, you know that I haven't stopped saying that every donation matters. Just to give those words a little perspective, here's how your donation can help LLS in different ways!
P.S.: Share the link to my page with as many people as possible! I want you to be a part of my campaign too :)
Our kickoff event went amazing! I felt honored as a candidate in the first place, but meeting all of the other students made me so excited to be a part of the Student of the Year Program. We began with a scavenger hunt, and I was able to meet and chat with so many amazing people, including previous Men, Women, and Student of the Year winners, our Honored Hero, and local survivors of blood cancer. Here's to the next 7 weeks!
Unfortunately, Dylan (my co-candidate) wasn't able to join me at the event, but here's me with two friends from swimming, Meg Macauley and Anna Cool, both candidates for Ursuline's team!
Kickoff is fast approaching, and Dylan and I are beyond excited about the fun events we have in store! 24 hours...
I am honored to participate as a team member for the 2020 Students of the Year program, a seven-week initiative in which select high school students from around the country participate in a fundraising competition to benefit The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I am proud to support my candidate and am raising critical dollars in honor of a young patient hero who is currently battling or is in remission from a blood cancer. Each dollar is a vote. The candidate team that raises the most money at the end of the seven weeks is named Student of the Year. Our mission is to not only raise the most money but also to bring attention to blood cancers like leukemia, which is the most common form of cancer in children and teens.
Since the early 1960s, five-year survival rates for many blood cancer patients have doubled, tripled or even quadrupled. And many LLS supported therapies not only help blood cancer patients but are helping patients with other cancers and serious diseases. In fact, drugs first approved for blood cancers are now approved to treat patients with stomach cancers, skin cancers, and autoimmune diseases like rheumatoid arthritis.
We really are changing the face of blood cancer!
All donations are greatly appreciated and are tax deductible. They'll not only support LLS-funded research but will help provide critical information and support for patients, and support advocacy for laws to ensure patients can access the care and treatments they need.
Please visit our website often and bring friends who would also like to donate!
On behalf of blood cancer patients everywhere, thank you for your support!
