Katie's Student Visionaries of the Year Fundraiser

Jan 08, 2023

Hello! My name is Katie Rizzuto, I'm a junior at Carmel High School. 


I'm running in honor of my grandma, who passed away from cancer when I was three. She recieved her diagnosis almost 15 years prior to this, but because of research that was experimental at this time she was able to meet me and my brother. I want to honor her, and give my family a space to honor her as well. Her story is why I'm running in support of the research pillar of LLS. I want to contribute to the development of new treatments for cancer, to give another family the opportunity she had.


This is my second year fundraising for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, and I'm honored and excited to be able to continue my work from last year. Thank you all for your support in the fight to end cancer!
