Team Go Go Gabi Fundraising Page!

Jan 15, 2021

Welcome To My Fundraising Page! 

Please join me in supporting The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) by making a donation to my fundraising campaign. Your support will be able to help fund life-saving LLS treatments and therapies! 

My dad, Paul Greblo, was diagnosed with Hodgkin's lymphoma in December of 2001. After undergoing chemotherapy and radiation, he was declared to have no evidence of disease in August of 2002. If it weren’t for organizations like the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, my dad’s treatment may not have been possible. I’m excited for the opportunity to support blood cancer patients as a candidate for Students of the Year this year! 

LLS's continued advancements over the years are responsible for the blood cancer survival rate doubling and tripling; in some cases, the survival rate has even quadrupled.

And many LLS supported therapies not only help blood cancer patients but are now used to treat patients with rare forms of stomach and skin cancers. They're even being tested in clinical trials for patients with a range of cancers including lung, brain, breast, pancreatic and prostate cancers. LLS funded drugs are now being tested for patients with other non-cancerous diseases like Diabetes, Rheumatoid Arthritis and Multiple Sclerosis. These advancements would not be possible without people like you! 

My team, Go Go Gabi, is named for our honored hero, Gabi Barreiro, who is a Hodgkin’s survivor, a former SOY candidate, and is currently studying engineering at UW-Madison. Her story and my dad’s make me determined to leave my mark on this important cause and I’m asking for your help.

All donations are greatly appreciated and are tax deductible- we understand that these are unusaul times, but please know that your support helps LLS to make groundbreaking strides in cancer therapies and advocacy efforts! 

Please visit my Web site to stay up to date on team ongoings and bring friends who would also like to donate!

 

 

On behalf of blood cancer patients everywhere I thank you for your support!

    Thanks to Barney and Karen Gallagher for the letter in support of this fundraising effort. I have a friend who is a survivor of Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma and am happy to support this cause.

  • Marsha A Stewart

    Dear Cecily --- I don't need to tell you that you have dedicated yourself to a wonderful cause. Your father was diagnosed before you were born, and it is wonderful that he beat his disease. Of course, it is always there deep in his soul. I am a good friend of your grandfather and Linda and have heard about you and your sister for years; they have been so proud of you. You come from a wonderful and loving family and that is good fortune enough. However, I can tell that you also are a caring and dedicated young woman which is a bonus. So may people complain that young people don't care about others and are indifferent about the future. I wish they could meet someone like you. Just know that you have an admirer from afar. I wish you luck and joy in reaching your goal, Cecily. You are an inspiration. Marsha Stewart

  • Meghan O'Connell
