Students of the Year Indianapolis

Ali Alhaddad | Ali Alhaddad's Campaign Team

Welcome to Ali Alhaddad's SOY Fundraising Page!

Jan 15, 2020

I am honored to participate as a candidate for the 2020 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. I am proud to join the fight against blood cancer and am raising critical dollars in honor of Ty, a young hero who is in remission from a blood cancer, to be able to help people just like him around the world who are afflicted with life-threatening diseases. 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.

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! And thank you for joining the fight along with so many others.

    I read your story in the IU Health Team Portal. So impressed! Thank you for raising money for LLS! I lost my father 10 years ago to Lymphoma, and I'm hopeful that one day we'll have a cure!
