Student Visionaries of the Year Wichita
Team Caring for a Cure | Caring for a Cure
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.

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!

Everyone knows someone who has been affected by cancer at some point. For me, that person is my mom. She was diagnosed with metaplastic breast cancer in October 2017 and battled for 2 years in her fight against cancer. This took a toll on our whole family but something that struck me immensely was the sense of community that we felt because of the support from people around us. I am teaming with LLS to help people like my mom because the research for blood cancer is just the beginning of the research of multiple other cancers. I would like to ask for your support to help cure blood cancers and further expand research for cancer.
My why is my grandma, Constance Elizabeth Frey. My grandma was an amazing mom to four kids: Traci, Jessica, Gus, and Katie. In September of 1991, my grandma was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and given nine months to live. She fought hard for sixteen months but unfortunately lost her battle on January 3, 1993. Her passing was extremely difficult for my dad and his siblings because they were all relatively young. Sadly I never had the chance to meet her, but she is still a light in my and everyone in my family's lives. My grandma is my role model for how strong she was and how she overcame any hardship thrown at her. My great-uncle and cousin have also passed away due to pancreatic cancer. Cancer's impact on my family and those around me has been immense. For these reasons and many others, I am teaming up with the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society to help find a cure, so no one has to go through the pain of losing a loved one.
Our team is filled with our closest family and friends! We know that each and everyone of our team members feels passionate about the cause and will help us kick cancer to the curb!
