Welcome to my LLS fundraising page!
This year I have signed up to be a member of the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society's Students of the Year Campaign! I am so excited to take on this challenge, as the mission of LLS (to cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease, and myeloma, and improve the quality of life of patients and their families) is very dear to my heart.
I have two major reasons why I have decided to partake in this campaign. The first being that during the summer of 2021, my friend lost her brother to Leukemia. Her brother was loved by everyone that had met him, and even people who had simply just heard his story. Patrick was a kind soul, a great brother, and an amazing person. Secondly, a family friend's daughter, Zoie, just recently won her battle with Leukemia.
LLS works with cancer patients to provide transportation to treatments, funds more than 60% of the therapies being used to treat various forms of cancer, and has invested nearly 1.3 billion dollars in groundbreaking research since 1949.
I am so excited that my team and I will be working together to raise money for LLS, but I am even more excited to know that our fundraising will be helping people in need.
