Why I Fight

I am super passionate about supporting LLS because of my Uncle Dan. He was first diagnosed with Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia in 2007. As of 2018, he’s cancer free thanks to a number of experimental chemo and biologic treatments, and then a complicated stem-cell transplant in 2018, as well as number of post transplant treatments. These are the kinds of cutting-edge treatments that LLS funding makes possible. It was really touch and go for him and he wouldn’t be alive today if not for having access to the latest treatments.  I’m so thankful to have him in my life and especially thankful that my dad still has his brother and my cousin still has his father. I seek to ensure that all families have access to these treatments in the future. 

Clio's Students of the Year Fundraiser

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.
We really are getting close to our goal of a world without blood cancer!
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!
On behalf of blood cancer patients everywhere, thank you for your support! For more information about LLS, please visit
