Grace's Student Visionaries of the Year Fundraiser

Hello, and thank you for making it this far! I am so so excited to be a part of this opportunity this year and wanted to take this opportunity to talk about my why. Why am I doing this and why does it matter to me? 

Well, there are a million different reasons and details I could get into, however, the one that sticks out the most to me when I really think about it is the fact that this is my opportunity, my time to make a difference in the lives of those who I may never meet but nonetheless are priceless to this world. In raising this money through your help and support, we have the potential to advance research and patient support that could affect countless lives for the better. I personally have not had anyone close to me suffer through this disease, but knowing those who have it can be one of the hardest things to make it through. 

It is truly so easy to get wrapped up in the stress and go-go-go mindset of everyday life, I myself am guilty just the same. However, taking a step back and putting things into perspective can make a lot of your stressors seem just a little smaller. Imagine on top of everything you already have, you also have a child or sibling with blood cancer and hospital bills on top of that. LLS provides free support and patient care for those in need; when you donate, your money is really going toward these families among countless other things. 

Not only is this an opportunity to change lives, but I also see myself growing as a person and a leader every day and I have learned invaluable skills through what I've done already, with much to come. 

Thank you for your support, everything counts! :)




Grace's Student Visionaries of the Year Fundraiser

Dec 15, 2022

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!
