Liam's Student Visionaries of the Year Fundraiser

Nov 02, 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 have a vision for a world without cancer because my grandma passed away from Acute Myloid Leukima in 2019. The whole process from her diagnosis to furneal was quick 4 months. I want others families, unlike my own, to hear to words " You are cancer free!". I am going to 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 52,000 dollars to fund one researcher for an entire year. 


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!

    I was diagnosed with Hodgkins-Lymphoma in 2012 and the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society was very helpful in my recovery. We have to keep fighting to find a cure. My father is over 12 years Cancer free from Non-Hodgkins-Lymphoma.

    Liam, I work with your dad. I am certain he is very proud of you for taking the time to raise awareness and funds to combat the disease that took your grandmother.
