HOW: Just follow the link above to purchase your ticket, and show up. Bring your generosity--the goal of the evening is to help Tommy meet his fundraising goal of $50,000 to fund a research grant for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. Get your tickets soon--this show will sell out.
WHY: The 2019 Students of the Year program is 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. These kids are not only raising critical dollars for blood cancer research, but also learning the skills to effect widespread change as leaders in the future.
Each dollar is a vote. The candidate team that raises the most money at the end of the seven weeks is named Student(s) of the Year. Their mission is to not only raise the most money but also to bring attention to 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.
If Tommy and his team meet their goal of $50,000, they'll be able to name a research grant in honor of Tommy's good friend Nate, a CML survivor who has inspired Team Tommy to action.
It's sure to be an amazing night. Come, get inspired, and be part of changing the face of blood cancer.
