Student Visionaries of the Year Washington DC

Sarah Dicker | Team Panthers Against Cancer

Sarah's Student Visionaries of the Year Fundraiser

Jan 13, 2024

This year, I am so proud to lead Holton's Team Panthers Against Cancer for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) Student Visionaries of the Year Campaign, working to raise as much as possible for LLS’s mission.

After serving as a team member last year on the Panthers Against Cancer team, I am so excited to continue my work with LLS as a candidate this year! Not only did our team manage to be runner-up in the campaign last year, but I was personally fortunate to raise over $22,000! All of this would not have been possible without your support!

I dedicate my time to LLS because of my dad, Karl. In 2013 my dad was diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphoma. Although I was very young at the time of his diagnosis, it still strongly impacted me and made me want to help other people like my dad! Luckily, thanks to great doctors and treatment my dad fully recovered and I want to be part of SVOY to help save more lives and to help fund research for more treatments! My dad inspires me with how strong he was through cancer and continues to be every day since remission! 

As a global leader in the fight against blood cancer, LLS:

  • Funds cutting-edge research leading to breakthroughs in immunotherapy, genomics and personalized medicine that are improving and saving the lives of patients
  • Provides free education and support for blood cancer patients and families, including personalized, one-on-one support, assistance with identifying and enrolling in clinical trials, and more.
  • Mobilizes thousands of advocates to drive policy changes that accelerate the development of new cancer treatments and break down barriers to care.

Please consider joining this fight by making a donation. All donations are greatly appreciated and tax-deductible. Please visit my website often and tell friends who would also like to donate!

 

Thanks to your support, my efforts will help ensure this generation is the last to see cancer.

On behalf of blood cancer patients everywhere, thank you!
