Students of the Year Buffalo

Greene Team | Greene Team

Welcome to Greene Team's SOY Fundraising Page!

Feb 19, 2020

We are honored to participate as candidates in 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.  We are raising money in honor of Orchard Park High School Senior Rachel Chapuis, who is in remission from Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. We are also raising funds in memory of our paternal grandmother, Varney Greene, who lost her battle with Small Cell Lung Cancer in 2011, and in honor of our maternal grandfather, Del Tice, who is an Esophageal Cancer Surviver.  Did you know that 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!

Remember that 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 -- we hope to help LLS continue improving on these results!

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!
