Team's Student Visionaries of the Year Fundraiser

Jan 25, 2023


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 to cure blood cancer.


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.

I am running in honor of Emily Higgins, a 7-year-old girl at the Tatnall School who was diagnosed at the young age of three with acute T-cell Lymphoblastic Leukemia. She battled cancer for 2 long years, and during that time, she was unable to do the things she loved, such as playing in the sandbox and with animals. Fortunately, thanks to the doctors and researchers that helped her fight off cancer, Emily has been cancer free for two years! 

Emily is a huge inspiration to me, never giving up hope while instilling hope in others. My campaign is devoted to fighting for people like her, so one day, no one will fear the words, “You have cancer.”

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!
