Team's Student Visionaries of the Year Fundraiser

Jan 10, 2023

I'm Amya Hood and I was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) on June 9, 2020 sadly it was a hard hard battle but I made it and through that I learned a lot of things.I even learned more when I relapsed on the day after my Cancer anniversary so I found out that I needed a Bone marrow transplant to survive this next battle and I did. It was the hardest battle even before the first time, there was to many set backs to count but I pulled through like I always do and I wanna help people like others helped me.


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!

    Amya Hood is my granddaughter. When she was diagnosed with cancer I immediately turned to my Father God. I put Amya in his hands for complete healing. I believe her strength came from him. She is a very strong & talented young lady. Please donate because every dollar will help in research. Thank you & God Bless.

    Amya is so strong and fearless and I'm unbelievably thankful for all the doctor's, nurses and everyone that helped keep her strong throughout.

    Amya is my new found sister! I had the opportunity to donate bone marrow to her last September. We were matched by fate and connected through blessings I couldn't begin to tell you! LOVE HER more than anything!
