Students of the Year San Antonio
Presley Hare | Presley Hare's Campaign Team
Dear Family and Friends,
My name is Presley Hare and I am a Cancer Survivor! I was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma in May 2017 and received chemotherapy treatments until November 2017. I am currently cancer free and undergoing immune therapy treatments to help my body recover from the effects of chemo. I am hopeful these treatments will end in May 2019.
I feel that the Hodgkin’s Lymphoma treatment plan I received was successful for many reasons. God is the ultimate healer and my faith in him has carried me through this past year and a half. The many friends, family members and others that don’t even know me, prayed for strength and healing for me. Everyone took care of me and my family during this most difficult time of my life. I know that many of you continue to pray and I appreciate all of you! In addition, my amazing doctor and his staff took great care of me and continue to support me during this healing time. Lastly, I am a fighter and my “never give up” attitude and “no tears” approach served me well throughout this journey. Most importantly, I cannot forget that without The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s research and development of cancer treatments, my battle may have been lost.
I am so very blessed and excited to announce that I am running for Students of the Year for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I am reaching out to you to ask for your financial help, as I raise money for this organization that is dear to my heart. The Students of the Year Campaign is a seven week initiative in which local high school students participate in a fundraising competition. This competition will begin on January 11 and will conclude on March 2. The candidate who raises the most funds at the end of the seven weeks is named the LLS Student of the Year 2019. I have set my goals high and would love to win this title while helping raise money for research. I am hopeful that you can support me in my efforts by donating to my cause, but if you do not have the financial means your thoughts and prayers are greatly appreciated! I am hoping and praying that this organization can develop more ways to cure blood cancers and make a difference in the lives of families just like mine. Who knows, maybe LLS can find a cure that allows cancer patients to keep their hair! That would be amazing, as I miss mine!
The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s mission is to: cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and myeloma, and improve the quality of life of patients and their families. Research money is needed to further improve treatments, ensure access to treatments and find cures for these blood disorders.
My appeal to you, as a Cancer Survivor, who has been through chemo treatment and has come out on the other side, is to please join my family and contribute to The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. By doing this, you would also help my team have a successful Students of the Year 2019 campaign.

Thank you for your consideration!
I am honored to participate as a candidate for 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 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!
