Students of the Year Atlanta
Team UnitedCure | UnitedCure
Hello! We are honored to be working with the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society through Students of the Year to raise money for cures against blood cancers. We have been given the opportunity as high school students to fundraise for cancer research, and our goal is to increase the possibility of a cure that can change the future.
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.
Our team goal is to raise $100,000 to link our campaign to a portfolio for Hodgkin's Lymphoma, a devastating disease that is the most diagnosed cancer in teenagers of our age group. As teenager ourselves with the ability to fundraise, we are ready to make the most of the next seven weeks of our campaign.
All donations are greatly appreciated and are tax deductible. 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.
