Aanya's Student Visionaries of the Year Fundraiser

Nov 18, 2023

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

My grandpa was diagnosed with colon cancer. Seeing the strongest and kindest person I know fight cancer was heartbreaking. Witnessing the toll of cancer, the relentless cycle of hospital visits, and sleepless nights, I was motivated to join LLS to make a tangible impact and help others in any way I could. I know that with your help, I can reach my goal and make a direct impact in the fight against cancer.  

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

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

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!
