World Cancer Day

Feb 04, 2023

Today, February 4th, is World Cancer Day. This day allows us to reflect on the advancement of cancer research and treatment. It is because of non-profits like the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society that we are able to celebrate so many cancer survivors and better imporve the quality of life for current cancer fighters. Thank you for your continued support <3

Hello and thank you for visiting my page! I can't believe we are hours away from kickoff! I am so proud to work with the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Student Visionaries Of the Year Program. This program allows high school student led teams to get involved with blood cancer research and advocacy. I am returning from the winning team, Team Cancer Crushers, and I am ready to dominate blood cancer. Follow me along my journey as I highlight my mom, a proud breast cancer warrior, and our Honored Hero, Emma Tabush, a 3 year old girl from Cypress, TX who was diagnosed with a form of Leukemia and is now in remission. Thank you for supporting me. God Bless<3. 


My Why

Oct 31, 2022
This mission is especially important to me personally because of my mom’s breast cancer diagnosis in Spring of 2021. Through her treatments I truly understood the toll cancer takes on a family. During my mom’s surgeries, I was asked to get involved with this wondrous organization that advocates and financially supports blood cancer fighters. I saw the impact they have on blood cancer warriors, their families, and survivors. I would later learn that through the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s fundraising partnerships with the Susan G. Komen Foundation as well as research that advanced mastectomies, which remove cancerous breast tissue, my mom would enter remission 6 months after her initial diagnosis. My aspiration is that no child will ever have to bear the worry of hearing their mom has cancer or worrying if their mom is going to be okay. I'm so thankful for this opportunity and am forever grateful to the Lord, my family, my team, and the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.

Ashton's Student Visionaries of the Year Fundraiser

Jul 07, 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!
