Devana Solutions is proud to announce their sponsorship of Team Raise Hope Together, formed by Grace and Jack Sherner, as part of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society Students of the Year program. Students of the Year is a philanthropic leadership development program for exemplary high school students that fosters professional skills such as entrepreneurship, marketing, and project management. The students involved in this campaign raise funds for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, the world’s largest nonprofit fighting blood cancer.
The Sherners, along with their friend Theo Weiman, formed Team Raise Hope Together in honor of their children’s grandfather, Larry Thayer, who was diagnosed with CLL (Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia) in 2007.
In April of this past year, their children’s aunt, Betsy, found a tumor on her left breast. Days later, she received a breast cancer diagnosis. In the months since, she has undergone a double mastectomy and a complete hysterectomy.
Devana Solutions is joining to be a part of the generation that puts an end to cancer and provides a monumental impact in the fight.
Devana Solutions’ CEO and Co-founder Barry Lake comments on the effort, “We are proud to support Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and the Students of the Year program. We strive to offer solutions to those committed to the fight against cancer, helping those researchers on the frontline close the gap in eliminating cancer by cutting time and costs in the drug development process. One day, we will defeat cancer!”
The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society is on a mission to cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and myeloma and improve the quality of life for patients and their families. Since 1949, the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society has invested more than $1.5 billion in research to advance therapies and save lives. Today, blood cancer patients live longer because of these advancements made possible by the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
The family remains committed to defeating their diagnoses. “I continue to work on my personal recovery, which requires piecing together a new body, mind, and spirit,” their Aunt Betty said.
