Student Visionaries of the Year New York City

Mazzy Wiles | Cancer Crushers

Mazzy's Student Visionaries of the Year Fundraiser

Jan 26, 2024

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!

    We are so proud of your decision to fundraise for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. This experience will bring you immeasurable gratification in knowing you are helping others. My dad, your great grandfather, died at 47 from multiple myeloma, a type of blood cancer, so selecting this charity is very meaningful to me. Your efforts will be instrumental in finding a cure for this terrible disease and give hope to cancer patients. I know you will be successful in obtaining your goal. Good luck. We love you.

    My cousin Ray was such a prankster. One time, he put a bunch of Tobasco sauce in my spaghetti while I wasn’t looking. I was four! But he also had good qualities. He worked really hard and would take his parents on trips around the world. He was 56 when we lost him to lymphoma. He left behind two 14 year old twin girls. Keep up the fundraising efforts, Muzzy! Proud of you!
