I just wanted to say THANK YOU to everyone who has supported me! Thank you for your donations, and thank you for allowing flamingos to 'flock' in your yard. I appreciate your generosity and I'm looking forward to this helping many people!
 

SOY Kickoff

Jan 09, 2019

My name is Harrison Licata, and it is with great honor that I inform you that my friend Colby Triplett and I have been nominated for the candidacy of the South Central Texas Chapter of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) Student of the Year award. The Student of the Year challenge is a fundraising challenge designed to aid the LLS in their mission of “curing leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin's disease and myeloma, and improving the quality of life of patients and their families.” At the end of the February 28th deadline, the candidate/team who has raised the most money will be announced as the ‘Student of the Year’. Our goal is to raise $10,000 during the 7-week challenge. I accepted this challege in honor of my family friend, George Decker. Mr. Decker was an amazing husband and father, but furthermore he was a pillar of the San Antonio and Hondo communities. Through his work as a pharmacist he shared his knowledge of medicine as he mentored high school students interested in pursuing a career in pharmacy, and also worked as part of a hurricane disaster relief team. George Decker was more than a family man, his impact was far reaching and he will be missed by many. I'm hoping that the money raised by Colby and I will be able to change the lives of other amazing cancer patients, like Mr. Decker, and their families for the better.

 

Welcome to Harrison Licata's SOY Fundraising Page!

Oct 23, 2018

I am honored to participate in the 2019 Students of the Year program, a seven-week initiative in which select high school students from around the country participate in a fundraising competition to benefit The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I am proud to be raising critical dollars in honor of a young patient hero who is currently battling or is in remission from a blood cancer. Each dollar is a vote. The candidate team that raises the most money at the end of the seven weeks is named Student(s) of the Year. Our mission is to not only raise the most money but also to bring attention to blood cancers like leukemia, which is the most common form of cancer in children and teens.

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 face of blood cancer!

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!
