Students of the Year Albany

Welcome to Jacob Ziehm's SOY Fundraising Page!

Yeah Dear Friends and Family,

First of all I want to thank you for opening this link. :-) I realize that all of you are very busy and taking the time for one more thing is often a stretch. But I want you to know that I am taking your time because this is very important to me.  By March 13th I have pledged to raise money to support research for blood related cancers.  

I am honored to participate as a team member for the 2020 Students of the Year program, a seven-week initiative in which select high school students from around the country participate in a fundraising competition to benefit The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.  I am proud to support my my friend Maeve and our team in raising critical dollars in honor of a young patient hero who is currently battling or is in remission from a blood cancer.  It makes me appreciate every day the gift of good health.                                                  

Each dollar is a vote. The candidate team that raises the most money at the end of the seven weeks is named Student of the Year. Our mission is to not only raise the most money but also to bring attention to blood cancers like leukemia, which is the most common form of cancer in children and teens.

Since the early 1960s, five-year survival rates for many blood cancer patients have doubled, tripled or even quadrupled. And many LLS supported therapies not only help blood cancer patients but are helping patients with other cancers and serious diseases. In fact, drugs first approved for blood cancers are now approved to treat patients with stomach cancers, skin cancers, and autoimmune diseases like rheumatoid arthritis.

We really are changing the face of blood cancer!

All donations are greatly appreciated and are tax deductible. They'll not only support LLS-funded research but will help provide critical information and support for patients, and support advocacy for laws to ensure patients can access the care and treatments they need.

Please SHARE the link to my donation page with your friends and family who you think might be interested in donating. The more people who know about this gives a greater chance of us reaching our goal and ultimately eradicating blood related cancers.

Thank you so much for your consideration.

Sincerely,

Jacob Ziehm
