Ava's Student Visionaries of the Year Fundraiser

Nov 30, 2022

 Hello I am Ava and I am 15 years old! Advocating has always been a passion of mine and helping others in need has always been something that uplifted me. I am involved in many aspects of my school culture and enjoy being an active member in my school. Outside of school I do girl scouts and have earned my silver award, so I understand hard work and dedication to a project. LLS has given me and others the opportunity to make an impact on a larger scale. I want to help others outside of my community by taking what I know and my talents I have gained through many activities and start a change. My dedication to LLS is also personal. My grandfather has survived lymphoma, so I understand the effect cancer has on a family however I believe I am capable of spreading hope; that's why I am cheering for a cure.


Ava's Student Visionaries of the Year Fundraiser

Jul 29, 2022

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.


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!
