Student Visionaries of the Year South Jersey

Visionaries look to the future—and see infinite possibility.

They challenge the status quo—and make the impossible possible.

They boldly imagine a better world – and lead the charge to create it.

The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) was built on that same vision - of a better world - one without blood cancers. Through our Student Visionaries of the Year campaign, we are excited to recognize these young leaders for being what we need most, visionaries.

Student Visionaries of the Year is a philanthropic leadership development program through which highly motivated, high-school leaders embark on a journey of professional growth, fostering professional skills such as entrepreneurship, marketing, and project management all while working to raise as much as possible for LLS’s mission.

These tenacious young changemakers fundraise for LLS in honor of blood cancer survivors. The titles Student Visionaries of the Year are awarded to the candidate teams who raise the most funds in their community during the 7-week competition.



Meet our Honored Hero - Daulton! 

Daulton was 3 years old when he was diagnosed with T-Cell Lymphoblastic Lymphoma. Despite receiving extensive chemotherapy and radiation, his cancer relapsed.

Thankfully, he received a life-saving bone marrow transplant and he has been in remission ever since.

Now 13 years old, Daulton is thriving thanks to the love and support of his parents, brothers Dylan and Dominic, and his dog Sadie. Daulton has a passion for Legos and boats, and he even earned his New Jersey boating license this past summer!

Thank you to Daulton and his family for serving as an inspiration for the South Jersey Student Visionaries of the Year campaign!
