Clara Winkel | Team Fly4aCure
Hi! My name is Clara Winkel. I am currently a sophomore at Leonardtown High School and am so excited to be a part of Team Fly4ACure! I love playing soccer, dancing, running track, and playing the violin. Cancer runs in my family, including my Grandmother who is a breast cancer survivor, so when Team Fly4ACure's candidates, Manasa Iswara and Hemani Kumar, offered me a position to be on the team, I accepted because I believe it is a great way to help my family, my community and the world.
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!
