Vivian Kammer | Changing Cancer's Course

Vivian's Student Visionaries of the Year Fundraiser

Dec 09, 2023

Visionaries look to the future—and see infinite possibility.
They challenge the status quo—and make the impossible possible.
They boldly imagine a better world – and lead the charge to create it.


The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society was built on that same vision - of a better world - one without blood cancers.


I am a visionary; I have a vision for a world without cancer, but I need your help.

I am passionate about raising money to fight cancer because I have seen the devastating impact that it has on individuals and families. While I do not have a personal connection to leukemia, lymphoma has touched our family and changed how I've grown up.  I can only imagine how scary it would be for families who do have to go through it. The resilience of those who have gone through the battle of cancer, whether they survived or not, inspired me to join this campaign to change cancer’s course and ultimately work towards a cancer free world. I aim to advocate for increasing federal funds and to remove barriers for cancer treatment and universally help all cancer patients and families access the lifesaving treatments and support they need. 

This year, I’m proud to be a part of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) Student Visionaries of the Year Campaign, working to raise as much as possible for LLS’s mission.


As a global leader in the fight against blood cancer, LLS:

  • Funds cutting-edge research leading to breakthroughs in immunotherapy, genomics and personalized medicine that are improving and saving the lives of patients
  • Provides free education and support for blood cancer patients and families, including personalized, one-on-one support, assistance with identifying and enrolling in clinical trials, and more.
  • Mobilizes thousands of advocates to drive policy changes that accelerate the development of new cancer treatments and break down barriers to care.

Please consider joining this fight by making a donation. All donations are greatly appreciated and tax-deductible. Please visit my website often and tell friends who would also like to donate!


Thanks to your support, my efforts will help ensure this generation is the last to see cancer.

On behalf of blood cancer patients everywhere, thank you!
