Hey everyone, I just want to say thank you so much for the help so far throughout my campaign! I'm proud to say we've already raised nearly 20% OF OUR GOAL! Just wanted to check in and give everyone a quick update. Lets keep killing it cancer killlaaaaaas.

Here we go!

Jan 16, 2021

For each person reading this, I want to thank you truly from the bottom of my heart. Cancer stinks. It's an understatement to say "cancer stinks", when in reality millions of people have lost their lives to cancer. Millions of families have been and are being broken up due to an unwanted and good for nothing disease. When I was two years old I was diagnosed with Burkitt's Lymphoma. I had no clue the severity of that at the time, but growing up learning about cancer, I truly realized how big of a threat cancer can be. Being a cancer survivor is something I can hold onto for my whole life. I was two years old and hold no memories from the time I was sick, but I do know one thing. I was lucky; at the age of two I had my family by my side doing anything they could to help me become healthy.  Thanks to them I am now 16 years old living the best life I could possibly live. Without my family during this time, I stood no chance; I will be forever grateful to my family for the strength they gave me during the time.

 Imagine for a moment how hard that time was for my family. My parents two year old son being diagnosed with cancer. My brother's brother going through a very difficult time. It pains me to think of the pain and burden this was to my family. My parents and brother went through countless nights at rest, thousands of dollars on treatment that makes the patient feel awful, and dealing with a sick child that has no idea what's happening. LLS is here to help not only cancer research, but also the families in distress. With your donations, families will be helped, children and people of all ages will be cured, and cancer will be beaten. WIth your donations you can make the day of a little kid who is scared and praying for their life. Having a strong supporting cast when encountering any difficult challenge is almost necesary to succeed. Please consider donating and being the supporting cast to the ill as my family was to me.

Thank you for visiting my fundraising page, welcome!

I encourage you to join me in supporting The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) by making a donation to my fundraising campaign. By donating to LLS, you support the many facets of LLS’s mission work from investing in groundbreaking research, providing education and support to patients, and advocating at the state and federal level for legislation to help those living with cancer. My appreciation for your support cannot be overstated — each and every dollar donated to LLS brings us closer to our goal to end blood cancer and makes an impact for cancer patients and their families.

As a global leader in the fight to end cancer, LLS is committed to doing more for blood cancer patients and families than any organization in the world. LLS’s signature fundraising campaigns drive critical support for its mission, including a nearly $1.3 billion investment in cutting edge cancer research worldwide since it was founded in 1949. Since the 1960s, survival rates for many blood cancer patients have doubled, tripled, or even quadrupled.

Every facet of LLS’s mission – research, education and support, and policy and advocacy – work in harmony to put blood cancer patients and their families first. LLS has helped millions impacted by cancer throughout its more than 70-year history, even funding breakthrough blood cancer research to advance lifesaving treatments and cures that is now helping patients with other cancers and diseases. That is why at LLS we say that beating cancer is in our blood.

Please visit my website as often as you can and share it with everyone you know who would also like to join us in the fight against cancer. Together, we have the power, the passion and the resolve to achieve a world without blood cancer. All donations are tax-deductible.

On behalf of cancer patients and their families everywhere, I sincerely thank you for your support!
