Maisy's Students of the Year Fundraiser

Mar 23, 2022

 

Hello again, Friends and Family!

 

There are 2 weeks left in my campaign! I am so close to reaching my goal and I hope you can help! ANY amount helps! I am honored to be nominated as a candidate for The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) 2022 Students of the Year campaign. This campaign selects high school students from around Western PA/WV to fundraise to ensure access to treatments for blood cancer patients. That means for 7 weeks (February 11th-April 1st) I have been working very hard to raise money that will go directly to help LLS and its mission to cure blood cancer and improve the lives of cancer patients and their families. 

I am competing due to the inspiration a family member gave me through her battle with cancer. She was put on an experimental drug, which ended up saving her life. The development of the drug is largely attributed to the work of the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society! This made my decision to run for this campaign even easier. Stories like hers and millions of others who have fought the same fight inspire me. Today more than a million Americans are fighting a daily battle with blood cancers and every 3 minutes another person unwillingly joins the fight.

 

I am writing to you today in hopes of your support for my campaign.

 

Here is how you can help!

Maisy's Students of the Year Fundraiser

Oct 22, 2021

I have signed up to save lives with the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) and am working to raise as much as possible over the next 7 weeks. Every dollar raised counts as one vote for my campaign. The candidate(s) 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 and skin cancers and are in clinical trials for patients with lung, brain, breast, pancreatic and prostate cancers. And LLS-funded drugs like targeted therapies and immunotherapies are now saving thousands of lives every day.
 
We really are getting close 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 website often and tell friends 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 www.lls.org
