Student Visionaries of the Year Northern Virginia

Sky Rossi | Sky's The Limit

Sky's Student Visionaries of the Year Fundraiser

Jan 09, 2023
 
 

Visionaries look to the future—and see infinite possibility.

They challenge the status quo—and make the impossible possible.
They boldly imagine a better world – and lead the charge to create it.

 

The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society was built on that same vision - of a better world - one without blood cancers.

 

I am a visionary; I have a vision for a world without cancer, but I need your help.

 

This year, I’m proud to be a part of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) Student Visionaries of the Year Campaign, working to raise as much as possible for LLS’s mission.

 

My name is Sky Rossi, and I am currently a sophmore attending Flint Hill Highschool! I play field hockey, basketball, and lacrosse in school!

​​​​

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​

 

I was inspired to become a candidate and lead my own team this year because experts say that the cure for cancer is within reach, most likely within my lifetime, and I want to contribute to that! I was also inspired by the story of Drew Snapkoski, LLS's honored hero!

​​​​​​​

 

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!
