Student Visionaries of the Year Golden Gate

Floyd Greene | Cancer's Collapse

Floyd Greene Student Visionaries of the Year Fundraiser

Feb 22, 2024

For those reading this that didn't know already, my dad relapsed AML for the third time this past month. Because of both the nearing deadline of the Student Visionary of the Years campaign event as well as benefiting others like my dad, it is very important to spread the word of this campaign to others who haven't seen it in order to raise as much money as possible for LLS.

My dad is has been through this before and will push throught it again, so don't worry about him too much, and thank you to all who have been sending him kind messages.

I am extremely grateful to those who have donated to my page so far, and am blown away by how close we are to reaching our goal. The event ends in a few weeks, and I am very happy with how much we have raised so far, but I really do want to push through these last few weeks strong.

Thank you all for reading this post and being involved with LLS and the fight against cancer!

In my earlier posts I went over my past with the LLS and how my dad overcame leukemia, so now I want to show everybody reading this what me and my dad have been up to recently.

Since his recovery, my dad and I have enjoyed going out into nature and going on hikes all around California and even some in Arizona. I am very greatful to LLS for the opportunity to be able to do this with my dad at the age of 52. This is us after hiking Angels Landing in Zion National park in 2023:

We have also enjoyed our share of Philidelphia sports, even considering the Eagles' downfall this year. My dad and I went to a few Phillies games this year as well as an Eagles vs Rams game which we did end up winning:

 

 

How I found LLS

Jan 18, 2024

Here's a picture of me when I was almost 3. My dad had just been diagnosed with Leukemia and was about to ebmark on an epic battle. Luckily, he beat the odds, and was able to make a full recovery due to LLS. At the time, I was too young to really know what was happening, but I soon started attending LLS events with my Dad, which introduced me to LLS' mission: To create a world without blood cancer.

1. My dad speakingat an LLS fundraising event at Salesforce:

Fast forward to 2020, and lightning struck twice. My dad had gotten the same type of blood cancer again. The odds of this happening were incredibly low, but he pushed through due to LLS' support and the treatment he recieved (which was also partly sponsored by LLS). Again, he made a full recovery and has been cancer free for over two years. This experience allowed me to realize the importance of participating in the fight against blood cancer, which brings me here today.

2. My dad addressing thousands of survivors and supporters at a Light the Night walk in San Francisco:

 

Floyd's Student Visionaries of the Year Fundraiser

Jan 08, 2024

Visionaries are crucial in driving progress due to their ability to conceptualize the future, their forward thinking mindset allows them to see beyond the limitations of the present and envision groundbreaking ideas. By challenging the status quo, visionaries push boundaries, set new expectations, and shape the future for years to come. 

 

The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society was built on that same vision - of a better world - one without blood cancers.

 

I am a visionary, part of a team of visionaries; we have a vision for a world without cancer, but we need your help.

 

This year, I’m proud to be a part of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) Student Visionaries of the Year Campaign, working to raise as much money as possible for LLS’s mission.

 

As a global leader in the fight against blood cancer, LLS:

  • Funds cutting-edge research leading to breakthroughs in immunotherapy, genomics and personalized medicine that are improving and saving the lives of patients
  • Provides free education and support for blood cancer patients and families, including personalized, one-on-one support, assistance with identifying and enrolling in clinical trials, and more.
  • Mobilizes thousands of advocates to drive policy changes that accelerate the development of new cancer treatments and break down barriers to care.

It is up to you to join this fight, and change the world for the better. All donations are greatly appreciated and tax-deductible. Please visit my website often and tell friends who would also like to donate!

 

Thanks to your support, my efforts will help ensure this generation is the last to see cancer.

On behalf of blood cancer patients everywhere, thank you!

    Nobody deserves to go through this once, let alone 3x. But if I had to bet on anyone to kick cancer's ass thrice, it'd be you. You have strength, grace and incredible character, and that's a rare combination. We may be in Philly, but we're here for you JG. And if you can get to NOLA in May, there's a good chance we'll be THERE for you too!

    I am so sorry for all who suffer and proud of all who fight for a cure. With my donation, I honor my long-time friend, JG and support you, Floyd, and your family with love and prayers. I am hopeful for another ass kicking!

  • Matthew Nabib Laurence

    Floyd, thank you for doing the good work here. Your dad is probably the most stubborn, hard-headed person I call family, and it makes him brilliant and focused and really, really strong; it's one of the many things I love about the guy. Plus he's got a great team behind him, including you and Orion to keep him fighting harder, and that great team has all of us out here supporting YOU, even if we don't get to see you that often. I hope to change that soon, and to do whatever I can to help make the third time the charm for your dad.

  • Don Proctor
