Students of the Year Pittsburgh
Team GLOW | Team GLOW
We are honored and beyond excited to participate as Team GLOW for the 2020 Students of the Year program, a seven-week program in which select high school students from around the country participate in a fundraising competition to benefit The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. We are proud to support our candidate, and are doing everything we can to raise critical dollars in honor of a young patient hero- who is currently battling or is in remission from a blood cancer. Each dollar donation is a vote. The team that raises the most money at the end of the seven weeks will be named Student of the Year. Our mission is to not only raise the most money for this amazing charity, but also to teach others more about blood cancers like leukemia, which is the most common form of cancer in children and teens.
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.
The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society is the world's largest voluntary health agency dedicated to blood cancer, and their mission is to cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin's disease and myeloma. We are thrilled to now be a part of the group changing the face of blood cancer!
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!
As my team, Team GLOW, participates in this seven-week long event, our ultimate goal is to help everyone GLOW; Get Leukemia Out of this World. Will you glow with us?
