Hi! Thank you for visting my page!

Fifteen years ago my grandmother was diagnosed with chronic lymphocytic leukemia. Her doctor said that she would mostly likely succumb to it within the next ten years, but now she has become the poster patient for stability as her health has continued to persevere. However, others are not so lucky and loved ones are dying every day due to blood cancer. I joined this program because I aim to make a positive difference for my grandmother and others like her. 


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, our efforts will help ensure this generation is the last to see cancer.

On behalf of me, my grandmother, and blood cancer patients everywhere, thank you!
