Students of the Year Albany
Devon Wormley | Worm's Wishes Campaign Team
Thank you for visiting my fundraising page, welcome!
My name is Devon Wormley, and I am a senior at Saratoga Springs high school. I am the captain of the Saratoga high school hockey team and a die-hard Buffalo Bills fan. Due to current times, our season was cancelled so I decided to join the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS) Student of the Year campaign. Every year this campaign is run in which students are nominated to help raise money in support of cancer research. Throughout my life I have seen the effect of cancer on my friends and my community. My team, Worm’s Wishes, will be fundraising from January 21st to March 12th, 2021 with a goal to raise $20,000 to support the LLS in their mission to cure blood cancer. My appreciation for your support cannot be overstated — each and every dollar donated to LLS brings us closer to our goal to end blood cancer and makes an impact for cancer patients and their families.
You may be wondering why donate to LLS? Well, LLS has funded 57 out of the 66 FDA approved treatments since 2017. Before I learned about LLS I had no idea that the treatments for Leukemia patients had not changed in so long and knowing that LLS was a major impact on changing the treatments has helped to motivate me. LLS is now focusing their efforts on battling pediatric cancer. In the past 40 years only 4 oncology drugs have been approved for use in children and 80% of all childhood cancer patients develop some other illness later on in life as a result of these treatments. If we can all support LLS we can hope to see the same advancements be brought to children's care that we have seen the LLS make in the past.
Please visit my website as often as you can and share it with everyone you know who would also like to join us in the fight against cancer. Together, we have the power, the passion and the resolve to achieve a world without blood cancer. All donations are tax-deductible.
On behalf of cancer patients and their families everywhere, I sincerely thank you for your support!
