I am very excited to announce that I have been nominated as a candidate for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) 2022 Students of the Year Campaign. My campaign is dedicated to my cousin Premil who sadly passed away in December 2016 just weeks after being diagnosed with germ cell cancer and leukemia.

We recently kicked off our 7-week journey to help LLS raise money and achieve its mission: to cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease, and myeloma and to improve the quality of life of patients and their families. LLS is the largest donor to blood cancer research in the nation. They have invested nearly $1.3 billion in research, and are leaders in advancing breakthroughs in immunotherapy, genomics, and personalized medicine. These revolutionary new treatments originally discovered through blood cancer research are now being tested in clinical trials for other cancers. While there has been phenomenal progress, there is still so much more to be done. Cancer is still one of the leading causes of death in children and young adults.

After having to watch my cousin and our family go through what happened in that scary time, I was determined to make sure that no person, or family would ever have to go through that pain. I am asking you to help me make a cancer free world a reality. When cancer loses, we win.

I cannot do it alone. I need your help.

Aside from donations, we would love to hear from you or someone you know who would be willing to donate goods or services for auction items, would like to sponsor the Grand Finale on Saturday, March 5th, 2022, or other possible fundraising opportunities.

Thank you for considering our request and helping our team truly make a difference for so many people!

Welcome To My Fundraising Page.

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
