Hanna Essey | Kick Out Cancer

Hanna Essey's Students of the Year Fundraiser

Dec 22, 2021

My name is Hanna Essey, I'm a senior at Fox Chapel Area High School, and I am honored to be a candidate for the 2022 Student's of the Year program! I have signed up to save lives with the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) and am working to raise as much money possible over the 7-week fundraising period, which is from February 11th to April 1st! Every dollar raised counts as one vote for my campaign. The candidate whose team tallies the most votes earns the prestigious title of Student or Students of the Year. Will you help me earn that title?
As you know, everyone wins when cancer loses. Thanks to your support, my efforts will help fund therapies and treatments that are saving lives. Over the years, support from people like you has been responsible for the blood cancer advancements that have doubled, tripled, and in some cases quadrupled the survival rate for some blood cancers.
Many LLS-supported therapies not only help blood cancer patients, but are also now used to treat patients with rare forms of stomach/skin cancers and are in clinical trials for patients with lung, brain, breast, pancreatic, and prostate cancers. LLS-funded drugs, like targeted therapies and immunotherapies, are now saving thousands of lives every day.
We are getting closer to our goal of a world without blood cancers!
All donations are greatly appreciated and tax-deductible. They'll not only support LLS research, but patient services, advocacy, public and professional education, and community services as well.
Please visit my fundraising page often and tell friends about it who would also like to donate!
On behalf of blood cancer patients everywhere, thank you for your support! For more information about LLS, please visit
