Students of the Year Atlanta
Team Hemoglobin Heroes | Hemoglobin Heroes
Thank you for visiting the Students of the Year fundraising page of Ella Carling and Sydney Rowen, welcome!
Students of the Year is a philanthropic leadership development program during which students foster professional skills such as entrepreneurship, marketing, and project management in order to raise funds for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS), the world's largest nonprofit fighting blood cancer. We realized despite our age, we really can make an impact. Ever since September, we have been building a strong team with peers who are as passionate as us. We encourage you to join us in supporting Team Hemoglobin Heroes with SOY and The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) by making a donation to our fundraising campaign. By donating to LLS, you support the many facets of LLS’s mission work from investing in groundbreaking research, providing education and support to patients, and advocating at the state and federal level for legislation to help those living with cancer. Our appreciation for your support cannot be overstated — each and every dollar donated to LLS brings us closer to our goal to end blood cancer and makes an impact for cancer patients and their families.
We joined this fight in honor of Atlanta teen, Ethan Daniels. Ethan and Sydney met two years ago in an acting class while Ethan was fighting B-Cell Lymphoblastic Lymphoma. He would walk into class every week with an enormous smile on his face, despite going through painful chemothearpy and treatments that same week. During his fight, Ethan was an inspiring advocate, and never gave up. In summer of 2020, Ethan went into remission, with the help of treatments made possible by LLS. Join us in our fight to help patients just like Ethan.
As a global leader in the fight to end cancer, LLS is committed to doing more for blood cancer patients and families than any organization in the world. LLS’s signature fundraising campaigns drive critical support for its mission, including a nearly $1.3 billion investment in cutting edge cancer research worldwide since it was founded in 1949. Since the 1960s, survival rates for many blood cancer patients have doubled, tripled, or even quadrupled.
Every facet of LLS’s mission – research, education and support, and policy and advocacy – work in harmony to put blood cancer patients and their families first. LLS has helped millions impacted by cancer throughout its more than 70-year history, even funding breakthrough blood cancer research to advance lifesaving treatments and cures that is now helping patients with other cancers and diseases. That is why at LLS we say that beating cancer is in our blood.
Please visit our website as often as you can and share it with everyone you know who would also like to join us in the fight against cancer. Together, we have the power, the passion and the resolve to achieve a world without blood cancer. All donations are tax-deductible.
On behalf of cancer patients and their families everywhere, We sincerely thank you for your support!
