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.

A few years ago, a dear childhood friend of my brother, with whom I shared countless memories, lost his life to leukemia after a brave battle. Witnessing his struggle and the immense pain endured by his family had a profound impact on me. Just a year later, my grandfather passed away from leukemia & lymphoma, prompting me to take a proactive stance and initiate fundraising efforts for LLS, aiming to advance cancer research. My motivation stems not only from a desire to prevent others from experiencing the devastating loss caused by cancer but also to pay tribute to my cherished childhood friend and beloved grandpa in the most meaningful way possible.

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!
