Sophie Bell | Shout Out For A Cure

Sophie's Student Visionaries of the Year Fundraiser

Jan 21, 2024

Hi, my name is Sophie Bell,  I am a Junior at Vel Phillips Memorial. I also have a speech problem so I didn't talk until I was five - so talking to you is a big deal for me. I am a candidate for the Student Visionaries of the Year Campaign, which is a 7-week fundraiser for high school students sponsored by the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.  We raise as much as we can. I am doing this for two reasons. My Mom is a cancer survivor. Without research and treatment, she would not have been able to have me.  I am also motivated to utilize this campaign to improve my confidence in speaking and using my voice.  I know my challenges were hard, but not nearly as hard as those facing Leukemia and lymphoma. I know I will lead my multi-generational team to success, raising money and having lots of fun with it.
