Smiles for Survival's Student Visionaries of the Year Fundraiser

Oct 25, 2023

I’m Cooper, and I am a sophomore at Horace Mann School. I have decided to become a Team Leader for LLS because I want to help. I am deeply motivated to help raise money for LLS and find a cure for blood cancer as it is something that affects so many people all around the world. Just, in my perspective, I’ve known a few people to have blood cancer and the stories and effects it had on them, inspired me to do my absolute best to raise money to help find a cure to this horrible disease. 

My name is Mia Tuchman and I am a sophomore at the Ethical Culture Fieldston School. I decided to become a team leader for LLS because I am committed to help raise money to find a cure. It is important to me because I strongly believe that together as a team we can come together and work towards finding a cure. 

My name is Haym Suissa, a sophomore from New York, at The Heschel School. I was inspired to become a candidate because of my mom, a three time hodgkins lymphoma survivor, after her first diagnosis, she joined LLS to fundraise for the cause. I want to do the same in order to help other families that are going through the same thing, and prevent others from having to go through treatments.
