Research Awareness Fact of the Day: The LLS is revolutionizing acute myeloid leukemia (AML) treatment through the first collaborative precision medicine clinical trial in blood cancer.

About me: Hi! My name is Raisa Hossain and I am a sophomore at Manhattan High School running as a 2023 Student Visionaries of the Year Candidate. I have  experience fundraising for the Class of 2025 Student Council, Red Cross, and my Business Professionals of America Chapter, but I wanted to use my skills to fundraise for such a meaningful cause. I have personally never been impacted by cancer directly, but I have witnessed so many friends and family friends go through the devestating experience of watching someone they love fight cancer. It is because of your donations towards the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society that one day we will have a world where there is a 99.999% cancer survival rate. My team and I are so grateful for every cent that you donate towards my campaign. Let's make Manhattan proud and kick cancer to the curb!! 



Raisa's Student Visionaries of the Year Fundraiser

Dec 21, 2022

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!
