The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society Presents

Visionaries of the Year

Visionaries of the Year is philanthropic competition to support blood cancer research among a group of motivated and dedicated individuals in communities across the United States.  Candidates form powerful fundraising teams and compete in honor of two local honored heroes who are blood cancer survivors. 

The candidate team who has raised the most funds during the ten-week campaign is awarded the prestigious title of Visionary of the Year in their community.  The candidate team who has raised the most across the entire US will be recognized as the national Visionary of the year.

Congratulations to all 2022 Visionaries of the Year candidates and team members. We are  currently accepting nominations for 2023 candidates. For additional information please contact your local LLS Region Staff Person.
