This year Izzy Pope and Theo Jones have been nominated for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) 2023 Student Visionaries of the Year campaign. “Student Visionaries of the Year” is a seven-week leadership development program that runs from Thursday, January 26th to Sunday, March 12th to raise money and help support the LLS mission to cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease, and myeloma, and improve the quality of life of patients and their families.
The pair are proud to say they have accepted their nomination for the 2023 year and they need your help.
Together they have created a team of committed friends and family to partner with them on this journey. They have set a fundraising goal of $30,000, and have chosen “advocacy” as the LLS mission pillar to represent throughout the campaign.
Theo and Izzy have a keen interest in policy and activism, through attending local government forums and aiding in a local politician’s campaign they saw firsthand the impact individual voices and initiatives hold. The money they raise helps LLS, the largest nonprofit dedicated to creating a world without blood cancers, advance initiatives like enacting policies that address the severe burdens of these diseases. Through their Office of Public Policy and network of over 35,000 volunteers nationwide, LLS advocates in Washington for laws and policies that accelerate the development of new treatments for cancer and break down the barriers to care that patients often encounter, including advancing oral parity laws, ending surprise medical bills, and limiting patients’ out-of-pocket drug costs.
The process of treatment should not be another obstacle for patients to overcome. By using agency they plan to advocate for those who can’t. Their campaign will provide support to the critical work of LLS in hopes that one day no one will have to grow up without the ones they love. With your help, they can reach their goal and directly impact the fight against blood cancers.
Thank you in advance for partnering with a campaign that fights tremendously so that our generation can be the last to experience cancer, and please remember, every bit counts.
