Thank you for visiting our fundraising page, welcome!

A few years ago, our soccer teammate and friend, Catherine Muir, was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia. She was only 11 years old. It was a very dreadful time for her and her family. After 1 difficult year of treatment, Catherine defeated blood cancer and is now 2 years cancer free!

Another family friend, Avery Stein, was diagnosed with lymphoma cancer just as she started her Kindergarten year in 2014, and her last chemotherapy treatment took place in 2017. After two and a half years of treatment, Avery defeated blood cancer with her brAVERY!

We encourage you to join us in supporting The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) by making a donation to my fundraising campaign. By donating to LLS, you support the many facets of LLS’s mission work from investing in groundbreaking research, providing education and support to patients, and advocating at the state and federal level for legislation to help those living with cancer. Our 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.

As a global leader in the fight to end cancer, LLS is committed to doing more for blood cancer patients and families than any organization in the world. LLS’s signature fundraising campaigns drive critical support for its mission, including a nearly $1.3 billion investment in cutting edge cancer research worldwide since it was founded in 1949. Since the 1960s, survival rates for many blood cancer patients have doubled, tripled, or even quadrupled.

Every facet of LLS’s mission – research, education and support, and policy and advocacy – work in harmony to put blood cancer patients and their families first. LLS has helped millions impacted by cancer throughout its more than 70-year history, even funding breakthrough blood cancer research to advance lifesaving treatments and cures that is now helping patients with other cancers and diseases. That is why at LLS we say that beating cancer is in our blood.

Please visit our 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, we sincerely thank you for your support!
