Kya's Students of the Year Fundraiser

Feb 06, 2022

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?


My brother Mason is currently 23 years old and is a cancer survivor.  He was diagnosed with Diffused Large-B Cell Lymphoma in 2019.  After two rounds of chemotherapy and a stem cell transplant, he is cancer-free.  I took this challenge to raise money to find a cure for cancer. But I need your help. The dollar you donate may be the dollar that cures blood cancer.  Let's make a difference together!
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

    My little brother has a rare blood disorder that could lead to leukemia, so I don’t take this lightly. He is having a bone marrow transplant next month to hopefully prevent him from ever getting leukemia, but I know how serious it is in the world and that it needs to end with our help.

    Thank you for raising funds for such an important cause. My mom passed away from non-Hodgkins lymphoma in 2008.

    I was diagnosed with CLL 10 years ago. So far I have a blood test every 6 months. So fat no treatments. I wish your brother the best in fighting his cancer. God bless
