Students of the Year Boston
Jay Gauthier | Team Future Thinkers
I am honored to share that I have been nominated as a candidate for the Leukemia &Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) Students of the Year program. I will be working with a team of other high schoolers in my community to raise money in honor of those battling or in remission from various forms of blood cancer. For seven weeks, I will be working towards my mission to not only raise money to support patients but to also bring attention to blood cancers, like Leukemia, the most common form of cancer in children and teens.
I am asking for your support for my campaign and help my team and me reach our fundraising goal. With your help, LLS canfund research that could save and improve the lives of many. If you could spare some money to come along this journey with us, we would be very appreciative.
Your donation would save the lives of patients like Kyle, our Honored Hero. On May 27th, 2019, Kyle was diagnosed with Stage 4 Anaplastic Large Cell Lymphoma and received his first round of chemotherapy. Following 6 months of grueling treatment, Kyle reached remission in November of the same year. Unfortunately, as is common with Anaplastic Large Cell Lymphoma, Kyle’s cancer soon came back. But never oneto back down, Kyle endured more chemo and received a bone marrow transplant at Boston’s Children’s Hospital in August of 2020. Kyle is a warrior and in his own words, “warriors don't win every battle, but warriors will always be ready to fight the next.”
Fighting cancer is in our blood, and it’s these donations that pull us forward. Thank you so much for supporting this cause, it means the world to see others so invested in our future.
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!
