Reed Switzer | Team Cancer Crushers

Reed's Students of the Year Fundraiser

Nov 30, 2021

I was diagnosed with Lymphoma when I was 8 years old. It was tough for both me and my family, but we made it through. After being at the hopsital and seeing all the other people there, I wanted to make sure when I got older I would help put an end to cancer. That is why I 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

    I am making this donation in honor of Reed Switzer. As an 8 year old, Reed fought hard for many months to overcome this illness. Our family along with the Switzer’s friends and acquaintances prayed constantly for a miracle. As a healthy young man Reed fights hard again to help support those who are ill and to raise money for a cure. Thank you Reed for remembering the vital role that community played in your recovery and for choosing to play a role in the recovery for others. Good luck!
