Students of the Year NW Arkansas

Grayson Ertel | Grayson's Team TKO Leukemia

Welcome to Grayson Ertel's SOY Fundraising Page!

Nov 13, 2018

I am honored to participate as a team member for the 2019 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. I am proud to support my candidate and am raising critical dollars in honor of a young patient hero who is currently battling or is in remission from a blood cancer. Each dollar is a vote. The candidate team that raises the most money at the end of the seven weeks is named Student of the Year. Our mission is to not only raise the most money 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!

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!

On behalf of blood cancer patients everywhere, thank you for your support!

    You are a very impressive young woman and I thank you for this amazing effort. I knew you when you were little and your mom and day lived down the road from me and would sometimes invite me to hang out on their dock and admire you and your brother. I also know Jimmy's mom from when she was on the board of Peace At Home Family Shelter and happy for me I know your mom's parents some as well. You have a great family and clearly are taking after all of them. Judi
