Atlanta Students of the Year
Ross Ashby | Team Fo Co Cure's Campaign Team
We are honored to have been accepted to participate in the 2018 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. We are raising $50,000 for people like Connor McMahon, our classmate who has won his battle against cancer; and our Honored Hero, Alyssa Howell, who is currently in remission from Acute Myeloid Leukemia. Our mission is to not only meet our financial goal 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 and we need your help!
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. And to learn more about the treatment that cured Connor, please click here:
On behalf of blood cancer patients everywhere we thank you for your support!
