Student Visionaries of the Year St. Louis

Amy Escamilla | The Butterfly Effect

Join me in the fight against cancer!

Jan 19, 2024

I am honored to share that I have been selected as a candidate for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) Student Visionaries of the Year Campaign (SVOY). Student Visionaries of the Year is a fundraising competition among a select group of high school students in our community who compete to raise funds for LLS. The candidate team who raises the most funds during the seven-week campaign period will be awarded with the title of Student Visionary of the Year. 

I have signed on as a Candidate to accomplish an ambitious goal of helping to cure cancer once and for all with a lofty goal of raising $50,000. This mission is especially important to me personally, for LLS’s has inspired me to participate in the campaign! Whether it’s something small or something big; I love helping others to make an impact! Knowing that I am helping others is a reward beyond belief.

The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society is the largest donor to blood cancer research in the nation. They have invested nearly $1.7 billion in research, and are leaders in advancing breakthroughs in immunotherapy, genomics and personalized medicine. These revolutionary new treatments originally discovered through blood cancer research are now being tested in clinical trials for other cancers. 

My campaign provides an opportunity to support the critical work of LLS in combating these diseases.  I am honoring those who have battled blood cancers and raising money that will go directly to LLS in support of its longstanding mission to find a cure and improve the quality of life of patients and their families.

If you would prefer to mail your donation, you can send a check back to me at 2652 Jonathan Dr

St. Louis, MO 63125. Please make your check payable to: The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and print “AMY ESCAMILLA - STL STUDENT VISIONARIES OF THE YEAR” in the “Memo” section.  The deadline for receiving mailed contributions is March 9, 2024. Please note: your donations are tax deductible. 


Be part of finding the cure and help Team The Butterfly Effect compete in the St. Louis Students of the Year campaign. For more information, please contact me at For more information about LLS and the Student Visionaries of the Year Campaign, please visit:
