Personal Statement :)

Mar 08, 2018

I am so honored to have the opportunity to raise money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. It is so important in today's day in age for people to help each other and love each other in whatever ways possible. Teaming up with LLS gifts me with the opportunity to help others and support the fight against blood cancer. -Sarah Porter


Hi all! My name is Francesca Geramian and I attend Folsom High School. I have always had a great passion for helping others, so and when I got the opportunity to be on Team Rise, it made me so excited to work together with my friend of 12 years to help fundraise for a great cause - Francesca Geramian

Welcome To My Fundraising Page! :)

Please join me in supporting The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) by making a donation to my fundraising campaign. Thanks to your support, my efforts, will help fund the therapies and treatments and help save lives today.

LLS's continued advancements over the years, are responsible for the blood cancer survival rate doubling and tripling; in some cases, the survival rate has even quadrupled.

And many LLS supported therapies not only help blood cancer patients but are now used to treat patients with rare forms of stomach and skin cancers. They're even being tested in clinical trials for patients with a range of cancers including lung, brain, breast, pancreatic and prostate cancers. LLS funded drugs are now being tested for patients with other non-cancerous diseases like Diabetes, Rheumatoid Arthritis and Multiple Sclerosis.

We really are changing the face of blood cancer!

All donations are greatly appreciated and are 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 Web site often and bring friends who would also like to donate!

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

    Thank you ladies for your hard work and dedication to a very important cause. My brother died of Leukemia almost 20 years ago, but thanks to the many advances, funded in part by endeavors like yours, more and more people with this illness are living longer and happier lives, and even beating it altogether. Keep up the good work!
