Chagrin Falls High School senior Ryan Hill is participating in the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) 2023 Northeast Ohio Student Visionaries of the Year campaign.
Student Visionaries of the Year is the newest LLS campaign where nominated high school student leaders raise money and awareness for the fight against blood cancers such as leukemia, lymphoma and myeloma.
This year’s campaign kicked off on January 27 and culminates at the LLS Grand Finale on March 18. The student who raises the most funds during this seven-week fundraising initiative will receive a $1,250 scholarship. The funds raised benefit the LLS mission: to find a cure for leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease, and myeloma, and to improve the quality of life of patients and their families.
“As a member of a friend’s team last year, I felt truly inspired by the work done by the Leukemia Lymphoma Society and wanted to make a difference,” said Hill. “ Now, I am ecstatic to help be a leader in the fight against blood cancer in my community. I have had several family members battle cancer so I know how scary it can be to see someone you love face cancer. This is why I am determined to raise money through LLS for patient support. I am sure that I will be able to make a positive impact on potentially many facing this batter with your help. There’s only so much one person can do, but when we all work together, we can make a huge difference.”
