Leah's Students of the Year Fundraiser

Jan 18, 2022
I am participating this year as a team member in Team Conor’s Crew in honor of my friend, Mike Kehoe’s, young cousin who passed away far too young at the age of 3 from cancer. Although it was not of blood cancer, I lost my uncle Scotty a few years ago from cancer and his loss has majorly impacted my whole family. By seeing the way that this loss affected the people close to him had inspired me to help work towards a cure and to help decrease the amount of people who have to deal with the passing of loved ones. My grandfather also passed away from cancer right before I was born, so I unfortunately never had the chance to meet him. A man who shaped the lives of my father and his siblings, and I never got to meet him because of this vicious disease. 4,000 children in the United States are diagnosed with leukemia every year. My goal is to decrease this number. To give hope for those already suffering, and for their families. I will do my best to raise money and awareness towards the goal of this campaign and getting a research grant in the name of Conor Kehoe. Please share this page and those of my team members to friends and family. Every dollar is enough to make a difference and a step towards a cure for blood cancer. Please give what you can, no matter how large or small the amount.
 

Leah's Students of the Year Fundraiser

Jan 03, 2022

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 cancers!
 
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 www.lls.org
