Kate's Students of the Year Fundraiser

Dec 16, 2021

Dear Friends & Family,

I have signed up to save lives with the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) and am working to raise as much as possible over the next 7 weeks. Every dollar raised counts as one vote for my campaign. The candidate(s) whose team tallies the most votes earns the prestigious title of Student or Students of the Year. Will you help me earn that title?
As you know, everyone wins when cancer loses. Thanks to your support, my efforts will help fund therapies and treatments that are saving lives. Over the years, support from people like you has been responsible for the blood cancer advancements that have doubled, tripled, and in some cases quadrupled the survival rate for some blood cancers.
Many LLS-supported therapies not only help blood cancer patients but are also now used to treat patients with rare forms of stomach and skin cancers and are in clinical trials for patients with lung, brain, breast, pancreatic, and prostate cancers. And LLS-funded drugs like targeted therapies and immunotherapies are now saving thousands of lives every day.

This cause is especially important to me because one of our dear family friends is currently battling cancer. She is 11 years old and has already gone through multiple surgeries and treatments. While she has been diagnosed with another form of cancer and not Leukemia, I am incredibly encouraged by the work LLS is doing with blood cancer research and the impact that may have a cure for her. I want to imagine a world--in my lifetime --where cancer is a curable disease and believe that support of scientific research is the way to achieve this goal.

We really are getting close to our goal of a world without blood cancers!
All donations are greatly appreciated and tax-deductible. They'll not only support LLS research, but patient services, advocacy, public and professional education, and community services as well.

Please visit my website often and tell friends who would also like to donate!
On behalf of blood cancer patients everywhere, thank you for your support!
