Hi everyone, 

As you all know, my name is Jacee Avara, and I am a sophomore at Mount Airy High School. Recently I was nominated for Students of the Year through the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. This is such an honor to me as my Aunt Traci was diagnosed with Leukemia back in March. She is my reason for participating in this fundraiser/campaign. 

Through this link, you all will be able to donate to me and my team. All the money received will go towards LLS and their research that will hopefully end cancer once and for all. If me and my team raise the most money, I will be titled Student of the Year for the 2022 campaign!!

Any amount is appreciated, and even taking the time to read through is appreciated. Thank you all for helping out! We can't wait to see where this team and campaign goes!





Jacee's Students of the Year Fundraiser

Nov 03, 2021

I have signed up to save lives with the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) and am working to raise as much as possible over the next 7 weeks. Every dollar raised counts as one vote for my campaign. The candidate(s) whose team tallies the most votes earns the prestigious title of Student or Students of the Year. Will you help me earn that title?
As you know, everyone wins when cancer loses. Thanks to your support, my efforts will help fund therapies and treatments that are saving lives. Over the years, support from people like you has been responsible for the blood cancer advancements that have doubled, tripled, and in some cases quadrupled the survival rate for some blood cancers.
Many LLS-supported therapies not only help blood cancer patients but are also now used to treat patients with rare forms of stomach and skin cancers and are in clinical trials for patients with lung, brain, breast, pancreatic and prostate cancers. And LLS-funded drugs like targeted therapies and immunotherapies are now saving thousands of lives every day.
We really are getting close to our goal of a world without blood cancers!
All donations are greatly appreciated and tax-deductible. They'll not only support LLS research, but patient services, advocacy, public and professional education, and community services as well.
Please visit my website often and tell friends who would also like to donate!
On behalf of blood cancer patients everywhere, thank you for your support! For more information about LLS, please visit
