Student Visionaries of the Year Maryland

Samantha Pratt | Cancer Wrecking Crew

Samantha's Student Visionaries of the Year Fundraiser

Jan 15, 2023

I decided to decicate my time to LLS and SVOY because I'm one of the lucky ones that gets to say I've been in remission for 11 years from Leukemia. I want every kid diagnosed with cancer to know that there are so many people fighting with them. I want every kid to know how strong they are and that they are capable of anything. I want every kid to get to experience life without cancer controlling them. I want every kid to have the chance to shout I'm a survivor!


Visionaries look to the future—and see infinite possibility.
They challenge the status quo—and make the impossible possible.
They boldly imagine a better world – and lead the charge to create it.


The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society was built on that same vision - of a better world - one without blood cancers.


I am a visionary; I have a vision for a world without cancer, but I need your help.


This year, I’m proud to be a part of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) Student Visionaries of the Year Campaign, working to raise as much as possible for LLS’s mission.


As a global leader in the fight against blood cancer, LLS:

  • Funds cutting-edge research leading to breakthroughs in immunotherapy, genomics and personalized medicine that are improving and saving the lives of patients
  • Provides free education and support for blood cancer patients and families, including personalized, one-on-one support, assistance with identifying and enrolling in clinical trials, and more.
  • Mobilizes thousands of advocates to drive policy changes that accelerate the development of new cancer treatments and break down barriers to care.

Please consider joining this fight by making a donation. All donations are greatly appreciated and tax-deductible. Please visit my website often and tell friends who would also like to donate!


Thanks to your support, my efforts will help ensure this generation is the last to see cancer.

On behalf of blood cancer patients everywhere, thank you!

    I completely support the mission and I hope that one day we find a cure. Until then just know there are plenty of people who support and believe in every child battling this disease. You're strong and can get through anything. The key is to stay positive and never give up because you have so many people fighting this with you and are by your side. You're never alone and always loved.
