Students of the Year Palm Beach- Treasure Coast

Isabel Bongino | Team Hope

Isabel's Students of the Year Fundraiser

Jan 12, 2022

I have signed up to save lives with the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) and will be working hard to raise as much funds and awareness as possible over the next 7 weeks. Please join me. Every dollar raised counts as one vote for my campaign. The candidate(s) whose team tallies the most votes earns the title of Students of the Year. I am counting on your support to help me earn this title. 
As many of you know, I was devastated when my dad was diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma in October of 2020. Watching him suffer through chemotherapy and radiation treatments broke my heart and changed my life forever. 


While my dad is lucky enough to be living cancer-free today, I know that many people who have been diagnosed with Leukemia and Lymphoma have not been as fortunate. My experience with cancer and the pain it causes gave me the motivation last year to raise money for my dear friend and classmate’s campaign last year. And, as they passed their legacy down to me, I hope to raise even more awareness, and more money for the great things that LLS does for people whose lives have been altered by cancer. 
Many LLS-supported therapies not only help blood cancer patients but are also now used to treat patients with rare forms of stomach and skin cancers and are in clinical trials for patients with lung, brain, breast, pancreatic and prostate cancers. And LLS-funded drugs like targeted therapies and immunotherapies are now saving thousands of lives every day.


We really are getting close to our goal of a world without blood cancers!
All donations are greatly appreciated and tax-deductible. They'll not only support LLS research, but patient services, advocacy, public and professional education, and community services as well.
Please visit my website often and share with friends who would also like to donate!
On behalf of blood cancer patients everywhere, thank you for your support! For more information about LLS, please visit
