Caroline's Student Visionaries of the Year Fundraiser

Hi I am Caroline Gephart, 

I am a co-candidate for Team Blood Busters. I'm super excited for this upcoming year and can not wait for kick-off. This year I am a candidate because last year when I was a team member I had tons of fun and got super inspired to run a team. 
​​​​​​​My family has a history of blood disorders and when I was in 7th grade my dad got stuck in the hospital for over a week and had no answers. He went to hospital due to extreme abdomen pain, which was when he learned his abdomen was full of blood clots. He was there for what felt like an eternity. At one point he had a blood test come back as possible leukemia, but thankfully it was not, but the test had a result that mimicked that he had leukemia.  He still has no diagnosis for his blood clots, but Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS) provides lots of research on blood disorders which brings him one step closer to a cure. My campaign will provide support to the critical work of LLS in hopes that one day no one will have to grow up without the ones they love. I know that with your help, I can reach my goal and make a direct impact in the fight against blood cancers.

Visionaries look to the future—and see infinite possibility.
They challenge the status quo—and make the impossible possible.
They boldly imagine a better world – and lead the charge to create it.


The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society was built on that same vision - of a better world - one without blood cancers.


I am a visionary; I have a vision for a world without cancer, but I need your help.


This year, I’m proud 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.


As a global leader in the fight against blood cancer, LLS:

  • 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.

Please consider joining this fight by making a donation. All donations are greatly appreciated and tax-deductible. Please visit my website often and tell friends who would also like to donate!


Thanks to your support, my efforts will help ensure this generation is the last to see cancer.

On behalf of blood cancer patients everywhere, thank you!
