Student Visionaries of the Year New York City

Team Call for a Cure | Call for a Cure


Dec 08, 2022

Within our community of dancers, athletes, leaders, artists, performers, and problem solvers we have banded together regarding one common cause that we each deeply care about: finding a cure for blood cancer. 

We are a group of passionate teenagers and adults who have been chosen to participate in The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) 2023 New York City Student Visionaries of the Year campaign. 

Blood cancer touches too many people in a multitude of ways. Our team is a prime example of this as each of us has different stories on how cancer has affected our lives. Whether it be a family member, a teacher, a peer, or dear friend we have witnessed the cataclysmic effects of this disease. 

Our fundraising efforts will run for seven-weeks from January 19th to March 7th. Together, we have set a fundraising goal of $120,000 and WE NEED YOU to help us achieve it! The money raised helps LLS, fund research to advance lifesaving treatments and take immense strides in creating a world without blood cancers, a world we would love and need to see. 

No one has to face cancer alone. We’re asking for a donation of any size. A mere $5 can go a long way.  

We encourage you to consider contributing to our campaign, and to be a part of LLS’s mission to find a cure for blood cancers and improve the quality of life for patients. 


On behalf of blood cancer patients everywhere, thank you!
