Paige Vergenes | Pittsburgh Curers

Welcome to Paige Vergenes' SOY Fundraising Page!

Jan 18, 2019

My name is Paige Vergenes and I am running for Student of the Year. I am participating in this program in memory of my Great Aunt Sandy. In the summer of 2018, she passed away from breast cancer. However, her battle never stopped her from being selfless and helping others who were less fortunate than her. I am inspired by everything she did and hope to be exactly like her one day.

I am honored to participate in the 2019 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. I am proud to be raising critical dollars in honor of a young patient hero who is currently battling or is in remission from a blood cancer. Since the early 1960s, five-year survival rates for many blood cancer patients have doubled, tripled or even quadrupled. And 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. 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!
