Students of the Year Loudoun County
Aaron Eichenlaub | Team Fight for the Light
I have signed up to save lives with the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) and I am working to raise money with my team 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?
I am fundraising in honor of my dad who was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma back in 2019, my freshman year of highschool. My family went through a very challenging time while my dad endured chemo-treatment after chemo-treatment. We were lucky enough to have a caring community that came together to support my family by contributing meals almost every night. The strength my dad exhibited throughout his battle against cancer has inspired me to this day. December 20, 2019, my dad entered remission, where he has remained for more than two years.
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.
