We are honored to participate as a lacrosse team for this seven-week initiative in which select high school students from around the country participate in a fundraising competition to benefit The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
This Campaign is dedicated to a very special warrior princess: Bella & her brave fight and legacy. We love you and miss you! You are our angel!
A couple of years ago our high school lacrosse team was introduced to a beautiful little girl named Isabella Inzerillo. Bella was diagnosed with cancer (Medulloblastoma) at a very young age. This strong little princess warrior loved supporting us at our lacrosse games. She had an infectious smile that made everyone around her happy. On March 5, 2019 at age five after nearly 2 years of fighting, Bella passed away. Bella left a lasting impact on our lives.
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.
We really are changing the face of blood cancer!
All donations are greatly appreciated and are tax deductible. They’ll not only support LLS-funded research but will help provide critical information and support for patients, and support advocacy for laws to ensure patients can access the care and treatments they need.
Please visit our website often and bring friends who would also like to donate!
On behalf of blood cancer patients everywhere, thank you for your support!
