Team Cancel Cancer's Students of the Year Fundraiser

Jan 19, 2021

Last year, we were nominated for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society's Student of the Year Campaign. At first, not knowing anything about the fundraising campaign, we were a bit hesitant; but, as we learned more and more about the campaign, we realized what a positive impact we could have on the cancer community. Especially with Covid putting cancer patients on the back burner, we felt that devoting our time to this campagin was the right, and best thing we could do to help those struggling this year. We are honored to participate as candidates for the 2021 Students of the Year program.

The Student of the Year campaign is where high school students from around the country participate in a fundraising competition to benefit The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. We are proud to be raising critical dollars in honor of a young patient hero, Aiden, who is currently battling a blood cancer. Aiden has another 19 months left of chemo, but is not giving up, and neither are we. Each dollar we raise benefits Aidan, and others like him all around the world. The candidate team that raises the most money at the end of the seven week campaign is named Student of the Year. While the title of Students of the Year would be an honor, our mission and goal is to raise money and bring attention to blood cancers like leukemia, not win a title. 

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 fate of blood cancer patients!

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!

Thanks again, 

Emily and Maya Cobb

    My sister Wendy has been battling stage 4 breast cancer for several years. She is the best of the three of us children and is my hero. It is her bravery and strength through which those of us around her gain inspiration and it is the pain and sorrow we feel watching her struggle that compels us to help fund the work for the cure. If not in her lifetime, perhaps in time for some hero in your family.
