Week 2 Update

Jan 27, 2021

I got to see my grandfather again for the first time in a year and reminded myself why I wanted to raise money for LLS in the first place. He has had multiple myeloma for almost 7 years, so I know first-hand how cancer can affect a family. However, with all of us working together to support the cause I am confident we will make a change!

 

 

Jack's Students of the Year Fundraiser

Jan 27, 2021

I am honored to participate as a team leader for the 2021 Students of the Year program, a seven-week initiative in which select high school students from around the country participate in a fundraising competition to benefit The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I am raising critical dollars in honor of a young patient hero who is currently battling or is in remission from a blood cancer. Each dollar is a vote. The candidate team that raises the most money at the end of the seven weeks is named Student of the Year. Our mission is to not only raise the most money but also to bring attention to blood cancers like leukemia, which is the most common form of cancer in children and teens.

Since the early 1960s, five-year survival rates for many blood cancer patients have doubled, tripled or even quadrupled. And many LLS supported therapies not only help blood cancer patients but are helping patients with other cancers and serious diseases. In fact, drugs first approved for blood cancers are now approved to treat patients with stomach cancers, skin cancers, and autoimmune diseases like rheumatoid arthritis.

We really are changing the face of blood cancer!

All donations are greatly appreciated and are tax deductible. They'll not only support LLS-funded research but will help provide critical information and support for patients, and support advocacy for laws to ensure patients can access the care and treatments they need.

Please visit our website often and bring friends who would also like to donate!

On behalf of blood cancer patients everywhere, thank you for your support!

    Hi Chris, What an amazing job you are doing to raise awareness and funding for these types of cancers. My father has non-Hodgkin's lymphoma and stage IV stomach cancer. Due to new immunotherapy treatments such as Keytruda my father is still here with us. He is 88 years old and a year ago they gave him 3 months to live. We are so blessed! God bless you in all your efforts. Keep up the great work! Mary

    Jack - we lost my father-in-law in 2020 far ahead of his time due to a blood cancer and I can only hope that my donation coupled with others will extend the time you get to spend with your grandfather and ultimately bring this disease to its knees. What a noble cause!
