Kaitlyn's Students of the Year Fundraiser
Kaitlyn's Students of the Year Fundraiser
I have signed up to save lives with the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) and am working to raise as much as possible over the next 7 weeks. Every dollar raised counts as one vote for my campaign. The candidate(s) whose team tallies the most votes earns the prestigious title of Student or Students of the Year. Will you help me earn that title?
As you know, everyone wins when cancer loses. Thanks to your support, my efforts will help fund therapies and treatments that are saving lives. Over the years, support from people like you has been responsible for the blood cancer advancements that have doubled, tripled, and in some cases quadrupled the survival rate for some blood cancers.
Many LLS-supported therapies not only help blood cancer patients but are also now used to treat patients with rare forms of stomach and skin cancers and are in clinical trials for patients with lung, brain, breast, pancreatic and prostate cancers. And LLS-funded drugs like targeted therapies and immunotherapies are now saving thousands of lives every day.
We really are getting close to our goal of a world without blood cancers!
All donations are greatly appreciated and tax-deductible. They'll not only support LLS research, but patient services, advocacy, public and professional education, and community services as well.
Please visit my website often and tell friends who would also like to donate!
On behalf of blood cancer patients everywhere, thank you for your support! For more information about LLS, please visit www.lls.org

I think what your doing is awesome Kaitlyn. I knew your dad very well dealing with case equipment which I have had the pleasure of purchasing several pieces from him.We used to joke around and basically tease each other as adults as I would tell him if you don't make it happen I'll have to buy a caterpiller (a competiters machine). He was always upbeat and happy and I'm glad I've had the chance to know know him. Chris Wickes
Great work honoring your father and making a difference!
As a Dad I know Keith would be so Proud of his Girls. They’re a very special Family!!!
