Warriors For a Cure | Warriors for a Cure
We are team Warriors for a Cure. We are Mariemont/St. Xavier High School students joining forces to raise money for the 2022 LLS Student of the Year Campaign. Like most people, our lives have been impacted by cancer. We were inspired to create this team and be a part of this competition, in part, because Graham Kempiners's mom was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkins lymphoma in January 2021. Graham is one of our team leaders. Graham's mom has been in remission since the end of March 2021. We wanted to dedicate our time to this cause to help others. We look forward to a future where the word cancer is NOT in the dictionary.
Warriors for a Cure 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, Februrary 16th - April 8th!
Below is a list of our Warriors for a Cure Team, please feel free to donate directly to a team member you know or you can make a donation on this page.
Matthew Langenderfer, Jr.
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 www.lls.org
