Student Visionaries of the Year New York City

Team's Student Visionaries of the Year Fundraiser

Jan 26, 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. 


The Cancer Conquerors team, led by Gaby Vanegas and Anisa Basler, is proud to be a part of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s (LLS)

Student Visionaries Campaign. We are working to raise as much support as possible for LLS’s mission.


Our team is passionate about raising awareness about the effects of cancer, especially since many members of our family have suffered from leukemia, lymphoma, and other forms of cancer. The team leaders have young family members who became diagnosed with blood cancer, so this year we are focused on fundraising for children's cancer research. We ask you to please join us in the fight against cancer! 


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!
