Why raise money for LLS?

Mar 27, 2021

This is why we're raising funds and awareness for LLS:


“Liam was my friend and someone important to our whole family. At the beginning of Liam’s Junior year he was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor. William “Liam” Lloyd Fairbanks passed away on August 4, 2020 at the young age of 19 after a courageous three year battle with brain cancer. No one should have to lose a loved one to cancer. No parent should outlive their child. This campaign is dedicated to Liam.” - Carter

“On the eve of a family wedding, my 2-year-old cousin Jonathan Blake was diagnosed with Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia. The day of the wedding he began chemotherapy and his difficult and uncertain 5 year cancer journey.  Ultimately Jonathan triumphed over cancer thanks to excellent medical professionals and scientific advancements. I’m participating in this campaign so there can be more happy endings like Jonathan’s.” - Alexia
