Bridget's Students of the Year Fundraiser

Jan 15, 2021

First of all, I would like to thank you so much for visiting my page and hopefully supporting me!

Many of you know me, but if you don't my name is Bridget Sevec, I am 15 years old, and a sophomore at Arundel High School in Maryland! I was nominated for this campaign by a close family friend, Mackenzie McCarter.  Mackenzie was first dianogsed with Acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) when she was 4 years old and relasped when she was 8.  I didn't understand much about cancer at that time and I didn't realize that the treatments that were keeping her alive, were also taking so much from her.  

I learned more about blood cancers when my close friend, Lucy Price's dad was diagnosed with Luekemia when we were both 8 years old.  This time, I saw how cancer really affected a person's life and family.  I watched as her dad had to go to the hospital for treatments and then lose his hair.  I saw again how much cancer took away from not just Mr.Scott Price, but also the whole Price family.  I am proud to say that Lucy has joined my team!

I encourage you to join me in supporting The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) by making a donation to my fundraising campaign. By donating to LLS, you support the many facets of LLS’s mission work from investing in groundbreaking research, providing education and support to patients, and advocating at the state and federal level for legislation to help those living with cancer. My appreciation for your support cannot be overstated — each and every dollar donated to LLS brings us closer to our goal to end blood cancer and makes an impact for cancer patients and their families.

As a global leader in the fight to end cancer, LLS is committed to doing more for blood cancer patients and families than any organization in the world. LLS’s signature fundraising campaigns drive critical support for its mission, including a nearly $1.3 billion investment in cutting edge cancer research worldwide since it was founded in 1949. Since the 1960s, survival rates for many blood cancer patients have doubled, tripled, or even quadrupled.

Every facet of LLS’s mission – research, education and support, and policy and advocacy – work in harmony to put blood cancer patients and their families first. LLS has helped millions impacted by cancer throughout its more than 70-year history, even funding breakthrough blood cancer research to advance lifesaving treatments and cures that is now helping patients with other cancers and diseases. That is why at LLS we say that beating cancer is in our blood.

Please visit my website as often as you can and share it with everyone you know who would also like to join us in the fight against cancer. Together, we have the power, the passion and the resolve to achieve a world without blood cancer. All donations are tax-deductible.

On behalf of cancer patients and their families everywhere, I sincerely thank you for your support!

Love, Bridget Sevec <3

    I lost my father when he was in his 40s to Lymphosarcoma. I was devastated by his death when I was in my 2nd year of medical school. I looked forward to sharing many of my adult years with him until his life was cut short by this deadly disease. Each year I learn about friends, family, or children who are diagnosed with this disease, which attacks people from a very young age to those older than 70. I am grateful to LLS and the magnificent work it does. I feel a sense of obligation and am honored to support it.
