Team's Student Visionaries of the Year Fundraiser

Jan 11, 2023

Welcome to Week 1. This is ground zero for the "Student Visionaries of the Year Campaign." This campaign offers the opportunity to be a catalyst of change in not only a local community but on a global scale. My name is Braden LeSage, and I am a junior at St. Francis de Sales. My Co Candidate Bre Rotterdam, and I recognized an opportunity to inspire a team to be a part of the solution to a global crisis. Our team, "Buckeyes Beating Cancer," has over 30 motivated members who have shared in our vision of a cancer-free society. Throughout my life, I have met person after person and family after family that has seen this crisis personally. LLS has offered an opportunity for high school students like Bre and Myself: to serve our families today and to protect the families of tomorrow. With your gracious help, we are a step closer to our vision of a cancer-free society​​.

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!
