Madeline's Student Visionaries of the Year Fundraiser

Apr 11, 2024

Thank you so much for your interest in supporting the mission of LLS!  Please note, gifts made on this page after 5:00pm on Thursday, April 11th, 2024 will not be counted towards the competition for the 2024 Triangle Student Visionaries of the Year. To make a gift that will be credited to your candidate’s competition total after 5:00pm on Thursday, April 11th, please visit 


I said "yes" to being a candidate because I wanted to make a direct impact on patients in my area, and I love that LLS helps me make connections with local patients and their families. I knew LLS was the best way to help others because they not only raise funds for research and new treatments but also provide patients and their families with a wider support network to get them through tough times. On top of this, most patients diagnosed with leukemia are children, so I think it is incredibly important that we provide them with extra support so they can enjoy just being kids.

Madeline's Student Visionaries of the Year Fundraiser

Nov 14, 2023

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!
