Riley's Students of the Year Fundraiser

Dec 01, 2021

Dear Friends and 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.
 
We really are getting close to our goal of a world without blood cancers!
 

I have seen the first-hand effect of cancer through family members and friends. I have always wanted a chance to help others and spread awareness about cancer.  My campaign through the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society is about promoting professional skills in young adults by acts of fundraising.  I have chosen to take this opportunity because personally my family has been affected by cancer and I know the struggle and the support needed when a loved one is sick. 

 

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.  You can donate directly to my page here or if you would prefer to mail your donation, please make your check payable to: The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and print “CLT SOY - Riley Ritter” in the “Memo” section and mail it directly to me.  The deadline for receiving mailed contributions is February 23rd, 2022.  


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!

-Riley
