Ted's Student Visionaries of the Year Fundraiser

Dec 05, 2022


Over the summer, my friend and teammate Trace Langin was diagnosed with High Grade B Cell Lymphoma.  It took everyone, but especially him and his family, by surprise.  He was only a sophomore in high school.  His life was turned upside down.  He had to take the first semester of his second year in high school online, he missed out on a season of football, and he spent countless days in the hospital.  Fortunately for him though, he was able to ring the bell just a few months after his initial diagnosis.  But some others don't always have the same outcome.

That's why I chose to be a Student Visionary of the Year.  I took on the role of leading a team of my friends and family, including Trace and his brother, to fight against the evil of cancer.  Not everyone escapes cancer like Trace did, and I am fundraising for a cancer free world.  In honor of Trace, I am fighting for a cure to ensure no one has to go through the pain of cancer again.

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!
