Kate's Student Visionaries of the Year Fundraiser

Jan 22, 2023

My big brother, Aaron, is turning 22 on January 24th. He was diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma a year ago. Thanks to the strides made in medical treatments over recent years, Aaron was able to ring the bell in just 6 months! LLS helped my family so much during Aaron's treatments, and now is our turn to give back. By donating during my 7-week campaign, you are helping my team reach our goal of $50,000! Not only that, but you are helping blood cancer patients like Aaron get the treatments they need. Thank you so much for considering a donation. Every dollar counts towards our goal!


Kate's Student Visionaries of the Year Fundraiser

Nov 03, 2022

Visionaries look to the future—and see infinite possibility.
They challenge the status quo—and make the impossible possible.
They boldly imagine a better world – and lead the charge to create it.


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


I am a visionary; I have a vision for a world without cancer, but I need your help.


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!
