Emma's Student Visionaries of the Year Fundraiser

Jan 29, 2024

Hello everyone, my name is Emma and I am thrilled to be working with LLS to help fund cancer research. Over the summer, I was fortunate to have the opportunity to be an intern at the Metropolitan Hospital in East Harlem. The experience brought me into direct contact with patients facing severe illnesses, including various forms of cancer. The suffering and resilience that I witnessed at this public hospital brought home the importance of raising funds to contribute to research, in the hope of making the world cancer free as soon as possible. 

When I first learned about LLS, I knew immediately that this was the perfect opportunity for me to make a difference, and I am delighted that I am able to share this opportunity with my friends who have joined Team EnCUREage the Fight. Now that fundraising has officially begun, I am so excited to see how much of an impact my friends and I can make!

Thank you for your support!

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!
