Reese Sweatman | Running for a Cure

Reese's Student Visionaries of the Year Fundraiser

Mar 02, 2024
They CHALLANGE the status quo - and make the IMPOSSIBLE  POSSIBLE.
They boldly IMAGINE a better world - and LEAD a team to CREATE IT.

I recently lost my Granddad on 10/25/23 due to Leukemia, Prostate & Skin Cancers. He fought a hard battle & lived a good, long life. 

My Granddad was always there for me from the very beginning! He loved the outdoors, the hard work of ranching, woodworking, and redbirds! 

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



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 to END CANCER ONCE AND FOR ALL!

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!
