Students of the Year Loudoun County
Laysha Ricci | Team Blood Squashers
Hey, I'm Laysha!
I am currently a Junior at Loudoun County Highschool and I love helping out in my community whenever I can! I first heard of this campaign through one of my other co-candidates, Alex Heinze. This campaign helped me go out of my comfort zone and really reach out to people who before I would never even think of reaching out to. It has also been very fun and an experiance that I'll never forget. Please help me out throughout this journey and help change the lives of many people. Thanks and lets beat blood cancers once and for all!
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
