Students of the Year Washington DC
Elissa Hall | Team Juliana
Hello! Welcome to my fundraising page for the Student of the Year fundraiser, a seven-week program for the LLS! I go to Washington-Lee High School in Arlington Virginia and I am a member of the Cancer Education and Action Club. Our team is honoring Juliana Clarkson who would have graduated from Washington-Lee this June. She was diagnosed with Mixed-phenotype acute leukemia (MPAL) and passed away two months later. I am honored to be raising money for such an amazing cause.
Since the early 1960s, five-year survival rates for many blood cancer patients have doubled, tripled or even quadrupled. And many LLS supported therapies not only help blood cancer patients but are helping patients with other cancers and serious diseases. In fact, drugs first approved for blood cancers are now approved to treat patients with stomach cancers, skin cancers, and autoimmune diseases like rheumatoid arthritis. My grandma passed away from cancer when I was 8, so I am very happy to support a cause that will cure many kinds of cancers!
We really are changing the face of blood cancer!
All donations are greatly appreciated and are tax deductible. They'll not only support LLS-funded research but will help provide critical information and support for patients, and support advocacy for laws to ensure patients can access the care and treatments they need.
Please visit our website often and bring friends who would also like to donate!
On behalf of blood cancer patients everywhere, thank you for your support!
