Sally's Students of the Year Fundraiser

Feb 17, 2022

When I was three years old, I was diagnosed with Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia. It wasn’t just my treatment that saved me, or the doctors and nurses that provided me with care and support. It was the people that reached out to me and my family. The people that stopped by to say hello, or helped us shop for groceries, or helped my parents reach a deadline at work. The people who knew that even a simple smile could make us feel less alone in that dark time. Today, I am starting a campaign that has been designed, supported, and brought to life with the help of those very people. This campaign is possible because of people like you who care about this cause and want to help. Unfortunately, some kids like me had all the support the world had to offer, and it wasn’t enough. Children are oftentimes forced to go through years of chemotherapy, stem cell transplants, and radiation to get their medical care. But we can’t help kids in the same way that we help adults. The money from my campaign will go towards cancer research, paving a path to a future where children will never have to suffer from cancer. It’s true that I’m leading this campaign for myself, my friends, and my family. But it’s also true that I’m leading this campaign for a bigger cause: Kids like me who don’t have the privilege of being here today. Kids like my friend Colin, who played a blue violin and performed at Camp Sunshine’s talent show. One year, we arrived at camp, only to learn that Colin couldn’t ever come back. That terrified me. Now, I want to make a difference. I don’t want to feel that way ever again. That’s why I’m asking for your help.  


Along with raising money, I’ve been reaching out to influential corporate leaders to speak with them about LLS and my campaign. Would your company be willing to support me? If so, I’d love the opportunity to schedule a meeting with you and/or your company leaders to share my story and how your company can partner with LLS!
