I have signed up to save lives with the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) and am working to raise as much as possible over the next 7 weeks. Every dollar raised counts as one vote for my campaign. The candidate(s) whose team tallies the most votes earns the prestigious title of Student or Students of the Year. Will you help me earn that title?
As you know, everyone wins when cancer loses. Thanks to your support, my efforts will help fund therapies and treatments that are saving lives. Over the years, support from people like you has been responsible for the blood cancer advancements that have doubled, tripled, and in some cases quadrupled the survival rate for some blood cancers.
Many LLS-supported therapies not only help blood cancer patients but are also now used to treat patients with rare forms of stomach and skin cancers and are in clinical trials for patients with lung, brain, breast, pancreatic and prostate cancers. And LLS-funded drugs like targeted therapies and immunotherapies are now saving thousands of lives every day.

Every facet of LLS’s mission – research, education and support, and policy and advocacy – work in harmony to put blood cancer patients and their families first. LLS has helped millions impacted by cancer throughout its more than 70-year history, even funding breakthrough blood cancer research to advance lifesaving treatments and cures that is now helping patients with other cancers and diseases. That is why at LLS we say that beating cancer is in our blood.
We really are getting close to our goal of a world without blood cancers!

I think it's time you hear a little bit about me: I am a junior at Marshall High School and this is my third year participating in this program. I am so honored to be leading Team Go for a Cure. My personal goal this year is to raise $5,000, which I believe is attainable with your help! My goal in starting this program my freshman year was to be a part of it all through high school to help influence those affected by leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin's disease, and myeloma, and I'm so proud to say I'm accomplishing that goal :). I want to dedicate my actions throughout this campaign to my cousin David. He is the greatest cousin as well as son, newphew, and brother.

All donations are greatly appreciated and tax-deductible. They'll not only support LLS research, but patient services, advocacy, public and professional education, and community services as well.
Please visit my website often and tell friends who would also like to donate!

Together, we have the power, the passion and the resolve to achieve a world without blood cancer.
On behalf of blood cancer patients everywhere, I sincerely thank you for your support!
