Dear Friends and Family, Ben has been given the opportunity to make a real difference as he participates in the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society Students of the Year fundraising campaign. Between now and March 5th, his goal is to fundraise $10,000 to help eradicate blood cancer. He is so grateful to have been nominated for the Student of the Year, as this gives him a chance to help make a real impact in the blood cancer community. This fundraising campaign encourages high school students all across Florida, all with varied experiences and stories, to fight for one common goal: raise as much money as possible for the efforts of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Please consider making a tax-deductible donation by writing a check made payable to The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (simply go online to his secure website: https://tinyurl.com/bmurphy21 and click “Donate Now”.
 

Benjamin's Students of the Year Fundraiser

Nov 17, 2020

I am honored to participate as a team member for the 2021 Students of the Year program, a seven-week initiative in which select high school students from around the country participate in a fundraising competition to benefit The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I am proud to support my candidate and am raising critical dollars in honor of a young patient hero who is currently battling or is in remission from a blood cancer. Each dollar is a vote. The candidate team that raises the most money at the end of the seven weeks is named Student of the Year. Our mission is to not only raise the most money but also to bring attention to blood cancers like leukemia, which is the most common form of cancer in children and teens.

Since the early 1960s, five-year survival rates for many blood cancer patients have doubled, tripled or even quadrupled. And many LLS supported therapies not only help blood cancer patients but are helping patients with other cancers and serious diseases. In fact, drugs first approved for blood cancers are now approved to treat patients with stomach cancers, skin cancers, and autoimmune diseases like rheumatoid arthritis.

We really are changing the face of blood cancer!

All donations are greatly appreciated and are tax deductible. They'll not only support LLS-funded research but will help provide critical information and support for patients, and support advocacy for laws to ensure patients can access the care and treatments they need.

Please visit our website often and bring friends who would also like to donate!

On behalf of blood cancer patients everywhere, thank you for your support!

    Dear Ben, this is a cancer that has cost me dearly over the years. I have donated many times over because it took the life of my parents, my beloved brother, grandparents and many others in my family and Hanks. Go and good luck many times over! Love from your Great Aunt Peggy and Uncle Hank Reder. Perhaps someday we can actually meet. Until then take care and congrats on all you have done and will do in the future.
