Ayana's Students of the Year Fundraiser

Jan 10, 2021


Hi, My name is Ayana Ahuja and thank you for visiting my fundraising page! I am a sophomore at The Madeira School. I like tennis, film, and community service. After selling dog treats to raise money for animal shelters and leading trail mix packing for homeless shelters, LLS was a great way to make a great impact in my community! Blood cancer is somehing that affects so many people, and blood cancer treatments can pave the way for other cancer treatments. Having family members who have passed away and are battling cancer, this is a cause that can truly help so many people. 

Team Tyler is raising money in honor Tyler Thomas. He was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukimia (ALL) at just two years old. After many years of chemo and treatments, he is now a healthy 12 year old boy! Our teams to help kids and families like him get the support they need. Tyler is the son of UMD Women's Basketball Coach, Brenda Frese. 







I encourage you to join me in supporting The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) by making a donation to my fundraising campaign. By donating to LLS, you support the many facets of LLS’s mission work from investing in groundbreaking research, providing education and support to patients, and advocating at the state and federal level for legislation to help those living with cancer. My appreciation for your support cannot be overstated — each and every dollar donated to LLS brings us closer to our goal to end blood cancer and makes an impact for cancer patients and their families.

As a global leader in the fight to end cancer, LLS is committed to doing more for blood cancer patients and families than any organization in the world. LLS’s signature fundraising campaigns drive critical support for its mission, including a nearly $1.3 billion investment in cutting edge cancer research worldwide since it was founded in 1949. Since the 1960s, survival rates for many blood cancer patients have doubled, tripled, or even quadrupled.

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.

Please visit my website as often as you can and share it with everyone you know who would also like to join us in the fight against cancer. Together, we have the power, the passion and the resolve to achieve a world without blood cancer. All donations are tax-deductible.

On behalf of cancer patients and their families everywhere, I sincerely thank you for your support!
