Students of the Year Bay Area
Team Huseby | Team Huseby's Campaign Team
Everyone has been affected by cancer in one form or another. As someone unable to ever meet or truly know close family members due to cancer, I’ve always wondered what more could be done to combat this terrifyingly prevalent disease. More specifically, I’ve wondered how I could have a tangible influence in this fight. This fall, I’ve found that opportunity and decided to take part in the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) Student of the Year campaign! From January 16th until March 7th of 2020, I’ll be in competition with multiple other students across the Bay Area to raise the highest amount of funds for LLS and their mission to cure blood cancer and improve the quality of life for patients and their families.
The money donated through my campaign would help fund LLS’s crucial blood cancer research, which has previously resulted in cutting-edge treatments. Since 2017, LLS has funded 41 out of the 47 FDA approved treatments. While their initiatives have a focus on cures for blood cancers, treatments discovered through blood cancer research has been successfully applied to other forms of cancer.
Today, I'm asking you if you could contribute to my campaign and LLS’s cause. Any contribution, whether big or small, is greatly appreciated. I can only take part in this program once as a candidate so I would love if you could spread the word of my campaign. It’s my goal to not let this opportunity pass without being as impactful as I possibly can. My team and I are working to make a difference, but we need your help to make a genuine impact.
