Student Visionaries of the Year Charlotte

Cameron's Student Visionaries of the Year Fundraiser

Dec 06, 2022

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.

 

As many of you know, my Mom was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkins Diffuse Large B-Cell Lymphoma in December of 2015.  I was in the 3rd grade and my brother, Cole, was in the 1st grade.  We watched my mom go through a series of chemotherapy treatments, spinal taps and radiation treatments along with many different medical complications over the course of the next year.  

 

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!

    Cameron your story touched me. Because just last year, when I was diagnosed with a NETS cancer, I watched my own young teenaged daughter, your cousin, go through the same types of fear. I am proud of you for stepping up to help other families who are dealing with this awful disease. Finally, my donation is in memory of my high school boyfriend, who passed away from a blood cancer at 19 way back in 1989. Because of efforts just like yours, that doesn't happen nearly as often to people. Keep up the good work little cousin!
