Jean Schif | Reese Power 2.0

Jean's Students of the Year Fundraiser

Feb 17, 2021
Losing Reese in 2016 left our family broken-hearted. The Naylor family is strong, but no family should ever have to go through the experience of losing someone who is barely a teenager. In honor of Reese and in support of Jen, Ryan, and Landon, my niece Claire Russell has agreed to raise funds for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. This organization not only does valuable research, they also offer tangible support to the family when the rest of us have little to offer. Please join me in supporting Claire. It's only through your generosity that a cure becomes a possibility.

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 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!

    James is a Six and 1/2 year old great nephew fighting Leukemia today. He was diagnosed in early December They travel about 150 miles every week for him to get his treatment. On March 9th the now family of four will welcome another sibling. Mom and dad will definitely have their hand full. Thank you Lord for Angela’s loving Family who are at her and Michael’s side at the blink of an eye. James is a very smart young man and goes to school in person almost every day. I pray daily for a miraculous cure every day just as I did for my great great niece REESE who unfortunately lost her battle to Leukemia several years ago God bless everyone who is fighting any type of Cancer.
