Dear Friends and Family,
Throughout this year of uncertainty and hardships, I was presented with the honor of joining a battle in assisting those who are affected by blood cancers. I am beyond excited to help make a positive difference in the lives of patients and their families, as well as in the advancement of treatments.
I decided to accept this challenge with LLS because I have had a passion in medicine for as long as I can recall, but more importantly I have a passion for helping others. Growing up, “What do you want to be when you grow up” is one of the most repeated questions. My answer has remained constant- a doctor. Until I can make a first-hand difference in the medical field, this is amazing opportunity for me to not only help others but continue to intensify my interest in medicine. After being a team member last year for this campaign, I was able to see how much of an impact that the work of the Leukemia and Lymphoma society has on people across this entire country. This year, while being a candidate myself, I hope to inspire others to join me in this battle, and to be the generation that makes a difference in cancer advancements.
Today is the day which you have the opportunity to make a change in someone’s life, and to make a difference in the work that the Leukemia Lymphoma Society is doing for patients- both present and future. Any contribution makes a difference. Every single dollar donated is a vote for me in this competition, and a vote to cure cancer.
Thank you in advance for considering making a personal donation. Your donation could be the one that funds the research that discovers a cure for cancer. Together we can change the world!
Thank you for visiting my fundraising page, welcome!
I encourage you to join me in supporting The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) by making a donation to my fundraising campaign. By donating to LLS, you support the many facets of LLS’s mission work from investing in groundbreaking research, providing education and support to patients, and advocating at the state and federal level for legislation to help those living with cancer. My appreciation for your support cannot be overstated — each and every dollar donated to LLS brings us closer to our goal to end blood cancer and makes an impact for cancer patients and their families.
As a global leader in the fight to end cancer, LLS is committed to doing more for blood cancer patients and families than any organization in the world. LLS’s signature fundraising campaigns drive critical support for its mission, including a nearly $1.3 billion investment in cutting edge cancer research worldwide since it was founded in 1949. Since the 1960s, survival rates for many blood cancer patients have doubled, tripled, or even quadrupled.
Every facet of LLS’s mission – research, education and support, and policy and advocacy – work in harmony to put blood cancer patients and their families first. LLS has helped millions impacted by cancer throughout its more than 70-year history, even funding breakthrough blood cancer research to advance lifesaving treatments and cures that is now helping patients with other cancers and diseases. That is why at LLS we say that beating cancer is in our blood.
Please visit my website as often as you can and share it with everyone you know who would also like to join us in the fight against cancer. Together, we have the power, the passion and the resolve to achieve a world without blood cancer. All donations are tax-deductible.
On behalf of cancer patients and their families everywhere, I sincerely thank you for your support!
