I'm Jordan Hannan, a junior at Cardinal Gibbons High School, and I was nominated to be the 2023 Triangle Student Visionary of the Year! This year, I'm challenging myself to use my voice to save lives, and I need your help to accomplish this.


Why am I so passionate about supporting the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society? My family has always been extremely passionate about medical research, particularly at Duke Children's Hospital, whose donors, researchers, and doctors have saved countless lives, including mine and my sister's. After being born three months premature, my older sister spent her first two months in their NICU. Three years later, I was born with a genetic disorder that predominantly affects my heart and has brought me to Duke for innumerable appointments and several surgeries throughout my life. The donor-funded research that has benefited my family has not been overlooked, and I want to provide that for someone else. I, with the support of the LLS community, strive to keep others out of hospitals and with their families. My campaign will provide support to the critical work of LLS in hopes that one day no one will have to grow up without the ones they love. I know that with your help, I can reach my goal, raising $50,000, and make a direct impact in the fight against blood cancers.  


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.

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!
