Katie's Students of the Year Fundraiser

Jan 03, 2021

Thank you for visiting my fundraising page, welcome!

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 on cancer patients and their families. 

I hold the cure for cancer near and dear to my heart after the loss of my Aunt Colleen, pictured above, to cancer in 2016. Having seen the devastating effects of cancer first hand my passion is strong for contributing to the development of a cure. Like so many others who have battled with this terrible disease, my aunt remained optimistic and cheerful caring more for others than herself. In that way, I strive to be more like her. Please consider your gift and ability to give during this season on behalf of these strong individuals weakened by cancer.

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!

    This is dedicated in honor of my grandnephew, Caleb Curtis, who was diagnosed with leukemia at the age of 18 months. My family lived for years with the uncertainty of Caleb's future, but it turned out well. Today he is a big, strapping, healthy 20-something young man. I hope that this donation and others will help other families have the same happy outcome that Caleb and our family have enjoyed.

  • John LeRoy

    I am donating because I think it is very important to support youth who are involved in community service.
