Students of the Year Albany
Subha Luck | Team Joel
Welcome to Subha Luck's SOY Fundraising Page!
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 Robbie Richards, my student candidate. I personally am raising critical dollars in memory of our dear friend and business partner, Nick Woodbury, who passed away January 29th from this disease. I also have a connection to Robbie's uncle who is currently battling Lymphoma. 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 visit our website often and bring friends who would also like to donate!
On behalf of blood cancer patients everywhere, thank you for your support!

Nick was my friend. We worked together off and on for about 40 years at GE and all its reincarnations in Burlington. He was one of those people who taught me how to be an engineer. Not the kind of stuff you learn from books, but the REAL guts of the job, not just how to do it, but how to do it right and well; how to do it and be proud of it. Nick was also one to go to with a new little chestnut I picked up from personal reading. Regardless of what it was, he was interested, and most often responded that he knew something about it from his own experiences and that would lead to a half hour discussion of facts and figures. Loved it! These two experiences are and will always be precious to me. Nick was a good friend, teacher and listener. A rare man whom I will never forget; his shop picture is in my shop, so in some way he will always be near me. Memories like these are the jewels we carry with us through life. Respectfully, John Gaye
I wandered back to the Kickmagic web site when thinking of Nick on his birthday a few days ago. It still hurts to think about losing him and I know it always will. He was just such an impressive and likeable person, one that I was so incredibly fortunate to know. Godspeed to him and all the people affected by cancer.
