I am honored to be a member of Reagan Rose's LLS team. Reagan is the type of person that inspires you to be better. Despite being only 16 she constantly strives to make this world a better place. One of the ways she is demonstrating this is by helping to fundraise for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Reagan is passionate about helping raise funds for this cause. It seems like cancer has a way of touching all our lives. In some ways it is good because it brings families and friends together and often makes us appreciate life more. In other ways it can truly devastate us by totally upending our worlds or worse yet ripping away our loved ones from us. That is why when Reagan came and asked me to be a part of her team I said YES and started to think what I can do to help her. I myself have seen the devastating effects of leukemia, first with a Fareway family team member and then with one of my closest friend's father. A father who I spent a lot of time with, since of course, my friend and I were always at each other's homes. In addition my own family has battled cancer after cancer. My Mom, Grandma, Grandpa, and Aunts have all dealt with cancer. That is why this cause is SO important to me. If I can help the fundraising efforts get any closer in finding a cure I am going to do that! This way I can help to possibly spare another family from the grasp of cancer. Together we can be the cure!

I am honored to participate as a team member for the 2020 Students of the Year program, a seven-week initiative in which select high school students from around the country participate in a fundraising competition to benefit The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I am proud to support my candidate and am raising critical dollars in honor of a young patient hero who is currently battling or is in remission from a blood cancer. Each dollar is a vote. The candidate team that raises the most money at the end of the seven weeks is named Student of the Year. Our mission is to not only raise the most money but also to bring attention to blood cancers like leukemia, which is the most common form of cancer in children and teens.

Since the early 1960s, five-year survival rates for many blood cancer patients have doubled, tripled or even quadrupled. And many LLS supported therapies not only help blood cancer patients but are helping patients with other cancers and serious diseases. In fact, drugs first approved for blood cancers are now approved to treat patients with stomach cancers, skin cancers, and autoimmune diseases like rheumatoid arthritis.

We really are changing the face of blood cancer!

All donations are greatly appreciated and are tax deductible. They'll not only support LLS-funded research but will help provide critical information and support for patients, and support advocacy for laws to ensure patients can access the care and treatments they need.

Please visit our website often and bring friends who would also like to donate!

On behalf of blood cancer patients everywhere, thank you for your support!
