Students of the Year Indianapolis
Ava Offenbacker | Ava Offenbacker's Campaign Team
HAPPY KICKOFF DAY! Thank you so much for supporting me by helping me achieve my goal, I am overjoyed with the amount of support I've received already.
I am honored to support 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. We are proudly raising critical dollars in honor of a young patient hero named Riley, who is currently battling 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.
My connection to the LLS is through a friend of mine. Unfortunatley, she was recently diagnosed with cancer just in her freshman year. I'm doing this program to help children, teenagers and adults like her. To improve their quality of life as well as helping to find a cure for this tough disease. This is where we all need to stand up and be tougher! Be apart of the change. Be apart of the generation that cures cancer. So please, donate to help save many lives.
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!
