Hi everyone, Brigid and Claire here!

Kickoff is around the corner and we have been working hard with our team, schools, and each other! We are SO grateful to have the support of our family, friends, and community. And of course, thank you to our wonderful team! Our mission pilar is advocacy... read more about it below:

LLS is relentless, agile, and determined to effect meaningful change in the fight against blood cancers and has raised its voice to put patients and families at the center of everything it does. LLS empowers advocates across the country to share their stories and prompt lawmakers to act on public policy issues that matter to blood cancer patients and survivors – from improving access to treatment to promoting meaningful insurance coverage for patients to accelerating new cures. 


We are beyond excited to start our fundraising period! Thank you all :)

Team's Student Visionaries of the Year Fundraiser

Oct 11, 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.


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!
