Julia's Student Visionaries of the Year Fundraiser

Jan 18, 2023


I am a visionary; I have a vision for a world

without cancer, but I need your help.


As a junior in high school I have always battled with the fear of being alone. I would not wish that upon anyone which is why I am raising money and supporting the people battling blood cancer who have no one rooting for them, and no one in their "corner". By donating I hope that like me you are fighting for the people who battle blood cancer alone and support them and making their lives better.


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!

    Julia, having lost both of my parents to cancer at a young age, I understand the value of fundraising and research in finding cures and funding treatment for various types of cancer. Thank you for being involved in such a worthy endeavor. Dr Chris Leber
