Warriors for a Cure!

Feb 14, 2022

In January, 2021, my mom was diagnosed with Stage 2 Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma.  That diagnosis changed our family's life.  Over the next few months after that, she underwent testing and chemotherapy and by the end of March 2021, she was in remission.  She is still in remission today!  Our family feels so lucky to have had compassionate medical care and the benefit of research studies funded by groups like LLS.  We want other families to benefit from advances in medicine and to have support and guidance throughout treatment.  For that reason, we joined with our friends to participate in the LLS Student of the Year Campaign 2022.  We appreciate your donation to help us fight cancer and the impact it can have on families.  Thank you!!


Graham's Students of the Year Fundraiser

Nov 18, 2021

I have signed up to save lives with the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) and am working to raise as much as possible over the next 7 weeks. Every dollar raised counts as one vote for my campaign. The candidate(s) whose team tallies the most votes earns the prestigious title of Student or Students of the Year. Will you help me earn that title?
As you know, everyone wins when cancer loses. Thanks to your support, my efforts will help fund therapies and treatments that are saving lives. Over the years, support from people like you has been responsible for the blood cancer advancements that have doubled, tripled, and in some cases quadrupled the survival rate for some blood cancers.
Many LLS-supported therapies not only help blood cancer patients but are also now used to treat patients with rare forms of stomach and skin cancers and are in clinical trials for patients with lung, brain, breast, pancreatic and prostate cancers. And LLS-funded drugs like targeted therapies and immunotherapies are now saving thousands of lives every day.
We really are getting close to our goal of a world without blood cancers!
All donations are greatly appreciated and tax-deductible. They'll not only support LLS research, but patient services, advocacy, public and professional education, and community services as well.
Please visit my website often and tell friends who would also like to donate!
On behalf of blood cancer patients everywhere, thank you for your support! For more information about LLS, please visit
