Student Visionaries of the Year Lehigh

Team Brodhead's Heroes | Team Brodhead's Heroes

Our Mission

Dec 12, 2022
Every year, the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society hosts a 7 week long event across the nation to raise money for blood cancer research. This Year, Easton Area High School’s Hero Squad has once again joined forces with LLS to tackle this 7 week campaign. Team Brodhead’s Heroes was founded in honor of Easton Area School District Teacher, Jena Brodhead, who was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin lymphoma and underwent chemotherapy while teaching full-time. Largely due to advancements in research funded by the Leukemia & Lymphoma society, Mrs. Brodhead emerged cancer free in October of 2013 and has been in remission ever since. Her story serves as a powerful reminder of the importance of research and fundraising for cancer patients. This year will mark the 10 year anniversary of Mrs. Brodhead’s remission, and in honor of her, Team Brodhead’s Heroes has set a goal of $50,000 during their campaign toward the research crucial for future patients. Co-Candidates this year include Tavleen Rahal, Estelle Fox, and Suhani Makwana. They will lead their team and community in contributing to this great cause!
 

Team's Student Visionaries of the Year Fundraiser

Aug 16, 2022

Visionaries look to the future—and see infinite possibility.
They challenge the status quo—and make the impossible possible.
They boldly imagine a better world – and lead the charge to create it.

 

The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society was built on that same vision - of a better world - one without blood cancers.

 

I am a visionary; I have a vision for a world without cancer, but I need your help.

 

This year, I’m proud to be a part of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) Student Visionaries of the Year Campaign, working to raise as much as possible for LLS’s mission.

 

As a global leader in the fight against blood cancer, LLS:

  • Funds cutting-edge research leading to breakthroughs in immunotherapy, genomics and personalized medicine that are improving and saving the lives of patients
  • Provides free education and support for blood cancer patients and families, including personalized, one-on-one support, assistance with identifying and enrolling in clinical trials, and more.
  • Mobilizes thousands of advocates to drive policy changes that accelerate the development of new cancer treatments and break down barriers to care.

Please consider joining this fight by making a donation. All donations are greatly appreciated and tax-deductible. Please visit my website often and tell friends who would also like to donate!

 

Thanks to your support, my efforts will help ensure this generation is the last to see cancer.

On behalf of blood cancer patients everywhere, thank you!
