Hey! Thanks for visiting my fundraising page! My name is Leighton Livengood, and I am a freshman at Enloe High School where I am on the swim team and active in the dance program. Outside of school, I proudly dance at NCDI, I enjoy walks around the neighborhood, I play ukulele, and I love to spend time with my friends and family. That is me in a nutshell, except for the HUGE aspect of my life invlolving wanting to make a difference! I have been a leader my whole life, which has gotten me in trouble more times than its helped me. But now, I have found the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society's Student Visionaries of the Year program, and am taking it as my chance to be a leader for the better good. I believe that I can lead my campaign team to raise an extraordinary amount of money, ensuring that my generation is the last to see blood cancers! I started my LLS journey in 2022, as a team member for another candidate team. This was how I learned that the mission of LLS is something that I am extrememely passionate about. So when I was nominated as a 2024 Candidate, I jumped at the chance! I am leading my campaign team, Team Answer For Cancer, in honor of my Aunt Karen who sadly passed away at age 6 from Leukemia. I feel so incredibely grateful to now be able to honor her memory in an even bigger way than being named after her.

I am proud to say that I have the fundrasing goal of $40000

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. Last year, I was a proud team member on another candidate team. Being a team member was how I realized how passionate I was about LLS and its mission. So this year, I decided to continue my LLS journey as a 2024 Student Visionary of the Year candidate in honor of my Aunt Karen who sadly passed away at age 6 from Leukemia.


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.
