Cole Fearnow & Quade Marks | Team Carve Out Cancer

Team's Student Visionaries of the Year Fundraiser

Jan 12, 2023

Dear Friends and Family,

We are extremely honored and excited to participate in the Student Visionary’s of the Year campaign for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS). Starting January 12th, this 7-week campaign will end March 4, 2023. LLS is an organization that is committed to saving lives by funding research for treatments, and providing valuable support for patients and families as they battle blood cancers.

Quade:  As many of you may already know, I was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia on April 17th, 2016. I was told I had weeks to live if I didn’t seek treatment immediately. I ended up spending 168 nights in the hospital and went through 4 intense rounds of chemotherapy and received a bone marrow transplant along with many blood transfusions, biopsies, and other procedures. In the summer of 2016 as I was getting used to living in a hospital, I started fundraising for LLS. I have been raising awareness and money for the organization ever since. I am so thankful I have been cancer free for seven years, but I am the lucky one. There are too many other patients and their families who are facing the same battle each year.  LLS can help end blood cancers with your support.  

Cole:  Several forms of cancer have made an impact during my life. My great grandmother died of Multiple Myeloma and I never got to meet her. My friend’s brother who was 16 got his leg amputated and recently passed this December from Sarcoma. And now my neighbor who is 15 just found out last week that she has Lymphoma in her chest. The fight to find a cure for Cancer must be done. While I am healthy, I also feel very lucky to have never been sick in this way. I would love to do my part to raise awareness and money to end cancer.
