My Why

Feb 17, 2022

I will never forget the first time I was exposed to the reality of cancer and its devastating effects - a family friend’s daughter who had passed away after a long battle.  Hearing about her passing broke my heart, and knowing there are other families out there who’ve experienced this and more, I was encouraged to do more and help make our society become cancer-free.  If there was a way to help families, patients, and research made towards curing cancer, wouldn’t you want to help out?  Here is the perfect opportunity to do good in our society - any contribution matters, big or small. In memory of anyone you've lost, known, or even heard about who has had cancer- do it for them. Do it to help our society get one step closer to being cancer free. 



Suchita's Students of the Year Fundraiser

Nov 30, 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

    I'm making this donation to the bravest survivor I know, Anna Tanaka, who kicked this cancer in the butt and survived and managed to do Iron Man afterwards. My heart goes out to all the families that are affected by cancer, and I pray for a cure in the near future.
