Team's Student Visionaries of the Year Fundraiser

Apr 02, 2024


This year, we're extremely proud and excited to be a part of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) Student Visionaries of the Year Campaign, working to raise as much as possible for LLS’s mission.

We are Lucy Craven and Maggie Chernez, and we are teaming up this year to help fight cancer. Lucy's grandmother is a leukemia survivor, and we both know many, many others affected by this disease. Please don't hesitiate to contact us at about any questions that you may have regarding our project!   You also may contact our campaign director, Amanda DuPre, at or (847) 903-2696 if you have additional questions about the campaign.

We would greatly appreciate any support you may be able to give to our campaign, whether it be a monetary donation, an in-kind donation, or even just sharing our page to friends and family!

Why LLS?  Here are just a few of the ways LLS works to help patients and fight blood cancers:

  • Funds cutting-edge research leading to breakthroughs in immunotherapy, genomics and personalized medicine that are improving and saving the lives of patients
  • Provides free education and support for blood cancer patients and families, including personalized, one-on-one support, assistance with identifying and enrolling in clinical trials, and more.
  • Mobilizes thousands of advocates to drive policy changes that accelerate the development of new cancer treatments and break down barriers to care.

We want to be a part of making these things happen to help patients and to do our part to put an end to all blood cancers. Please consider joining this fight by making a donation. All donations are greatly appreciated and tax-deductible. Please visit our website often and tell friends who would also like to donate!

On behalf of blood cancer patients everywhere, thank you!
