Mission Pillar - Advocacy

During my freshman year of high school, we had to do a project on a reformation. It asked us what a major problem was in the United States and how could we fix it. I chose healthcare, where from both Youtube videos and the news I've seen American greed manifest in inflating healthcare prices. From this project, I began to truly understand the importance of health equity and its magnitude. Hundreds of thousands of people don't have access to healthcare or life-saving medication, but LLS is helping to change that. This is why, part of, "My Why" in joining LLS is to create equitable and accessible Cancer Care for All! Thank you LLS for all your work and patient outreach.

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!

    Emma, thank you for leading the efforts for this great cause. I know a 5-year-old warrior, Audrey, who fights against leukemia bravely. Hope the funds you raise will benefit children like Audrey and their families.
