We are honored to participate in 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. 

As a team, we each have a connection to someone that has or currently is fighting cancer and that is a motivating force to fundraise for this cause. We are also very proud to be raising critical dollars in honor of a young patient hero, Athena Giassakis. At 22 months, Athena Giassakis was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia. Now she is 8 years old and has been in remission for 4 years.

Each dollar is a vote. The candidate team that raises the most money at the end of the seven weeks is named Students 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. As a combined team goal, we want to raise at least $50,000 towards blood cancer research. 

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. 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! Please join us in "Kicking Cancer's Butt!"

Your donation makes a difference! Please comment and share your story and connection to our cause! We're all in, are you?
