Student Visionaries of the Year New York City

Catherine's Student Visionaries of the Year Fundraiser

Jan 17, 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. I have created a team of committed friends and family to partner with me on this journey. The money raised helps LLS, the largest nonprofit dedicated to creating a world without blood cancers, fund research to advance lifesaving treatments, drive advocacy for policies that protect patient access to these treatments, and provide patients and families with hope, guidance, education and support. Our team is particularly passionate about Patient Support and will be representing this area of LLS during my campaign. LLS works tirelessly to provide hope, guidance, education, and support when it’s needed most, so no one has to face cancer alone. Its robust financial assistance programs provide a crucial lifeline for blood cancer patients and their families, and in 2021 alone, LLS provided $241 million in financial assistance to over 42,000 patients.   

My passion for this cause and reason for participating this year is to get involved in a meaningful cause that allows me to directly give back to not only my community, but also to hopefully make an impact on a global scale. LLS is an empowering opportunity for me to be able to spread more awareness and make my contribution to the fight against blood cancer. My campaign will provide support to the critical work of LLS in hopes that one day no one will have to grow up without the ones they love. I know that with your help, I can reach my goal and make a direct impact in the fight against blood cancers.   

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!​​​​​​​
