    I have received permission from PartyZone administration to advertise this fundraiser across the network.

    Hey folks, it's been a while, but many of you may remember that last year around this time I was a candidate for the Students of the Year fundraising competition funding the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I cannot run again as a candidate this year, but my lovely friend Maggie decided to run the team as a legacy team of what I created last year. My team raises critical funds for LLS and is named Team Barbie in honor of a close family friend of mine who has gone through the debilitating effects of cancer.

    Feel free to donate HERE

    In my precious fundraiser, you were all incredibly generous and kind and I'm so glad to be a part of PartyZone and its giving community.
    • 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.
    • All donations are greatly appreciated and are tax-deductible. This will not only support LLS-funded research but will also help provide critical information and support for patients, and support advocacy for laws to ensure patients can access the care and treatments they need
    On behalf of blood cancer patients everywhere, thank you for your support!
    For more information about LLS, please visit www.lls.org.

    To anyone who may donate or has already donated, I want to personally say thank you from the bottom of my heart. I am proud to be sharing this fundraiser with such a loving community that I have been a part of for so long. Even if you aren't able to donate, please spread the word about the donation! Together we can be the generation that finds a cure for cancer!

    Huge shoutout to Kankson for his incredibly thoughtful donation last year, it's people like you that truly take us one step closer to finding a cure. Also if the donate here button doesn't work, you can just click this link: https://events.lls.org/sc/scsoy20/slonyo

    I just want to say thank you for doing this. I know it must mean so much too soo many people especially those who are affected by the cancer and their families. As you may know and many do on partyzone i lost my twin brother to cancer 3 1/2 years ago. So it truly warms my heart to see people raising money for cancer of any type really. It also makes me so happy to see that people really do care about raising money for cancer. It truly truly makes me feel so happy inside to hear people who have beat and survived cancer. I am so truly thankful for seeing this. Thank you ❤️

    I'm planning to donate this year! Last year I didn't have the means to donate with my own money & I'm excited to be able to participate this year. I always try to give back in support of research & families, as I know medical costs alone can destroy a family & money towards new research is extremely expensive. It won't be much, but it'll be what I can give in hopes of benefiting the cause. Thank you for your willingness to spread the word, even on a Minecraft-related platform. What you are doing is amazing!<3
