Jules Weinstein | Team CBC: Curing Blood Cancer

Jules' Student Visionaries of the Year Fundraiser

Jan 11, 2023

Welcome to my 2023 Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) Houston Student Visionaries of the Year fundraising page! Today more than one million Americans are fighting a daily battle with blood cancers, and every 3 minutes another person unwillingly joins the fight.


Team CBC is my fundraising team, and I have great ambitions to lead my campaign toward our goal to raise $75,000 that kicks off on January 12, 2023 and culminates in a grand finale celebration on March 4th. With your help and support, we are looking forward to Curing Blood Cancer.


Last year, my best friend Lindsey Karkowsky was an LLS candidate and asked me to be one of her team members, inspiring me to lead my own team this year. I grew up in a household with my father and grandfather being doctors, and my mother and sister being heavily involved with non-profit organizations. Conversation surrounding the importance of both health and advocacy became normalcies. Starting from the day I was born, Annie Wells made her presence in my life as a babysitter and soon became a part of our family. Annie told me about her internship at LLS, which she described as life changing. This sparked my desire to get involved with LLS, giving me the opportunity to experience something that changed the life of someone who had such a prominent impact on mine. Annie told me that she was “so proud to see the next generation focused on finding a cure and fundraising,” which means everything to me. As my childhood went on, blood cancer was a perpetual and relentless villain. One day my mom’s friend Joy called to ask if she could help a friend of hers headed to Houston for treatment at M.D. Andersen for acute myeloid leukemia. My mom would hang out with Robyn, bring her meals and drive her to appointments while she was getting treatment. My mom said the time she spent with Robyn, the girl with the amazing laugh, was a gift. Robyn passed away on October 4, 2012. Later, in high school my cheer coach’s son Charlie developed leukemia at 3-years-old and passed away at age five. I am so honored to take on this challenge in honor of Annie, Robyn, and Charlie.


Help be part of the cure and help my team compete in the Houston Student Visionaries of the Year campaign. For more information, please contact me at For more information about LLS and Student Visionaries of the Year, please visit
