Students of the Year Atlanta
Team Hola Cure | Hola Cure
Our GoLead class at Mount Paran Christian School has given us the opportunity to support the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS). As co-candidates in the LLS Students of the Year Campaign, we are working on a fundraiser to enhance our leadership development skills. Together with our team members, Ben Keller and Aiden Ross, our “HOLA Cure” team plans to raise $50,000 in the 7 weeks running from January 31st to March 23rd. We know this is an ambitious undertaking, but we know that we can achieve it with the help of you, our amazing family and friends.
Millions of people around the world are fighting a daily battle with blood cancer and every three minutes another person joins the struggle. We have always wanted to help fight for those who are affected by such an awful disease and hope to say one day that we helped find a cure for cancer.
The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society is the largest donor to blood cancer research in the nation and one hundred percent of our contributions will go towards the outstanding life-saving research they have been doing.
As a team, we have special reasons for partnering with LLS. Co-candidate, Hannah Cantwell’s mother, Tina Cantwell, is a two-time breast cancer survivor. Adriamycin, a chemotherapy drug developed originally to treat leukemia and lymphoma, was given to Tina to treat her breast cancer. This is the drug that saved her life. Additionally, Lola Robertson's cousin, Emma Quinney, fought hard but tragically lost her battle with cancer when she was 13 years old. We are so inspired by both of their stories and we want to help other patients and families who are affected by cancer.
We would like to invite you to support our team as we take on this project that will impact so many lives. Please see the red donation button to the left to make your tax-deductible donation. LLS will provide a tax receipt afterward.
Thank you so much in advance for your support.
All our best,
Hannah Cantwell and Lola Robertson
