FCAHS Senior Named Student of the Year by Leukemia & Lymphoma Society

Hanna Essey

Fox Chapel Area High School senior Hanna Essey has been named a 2022 Student of the Year by the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS). Hanna and her team, Kick Out Cancer, raised a total of $50,522.

Students of the Year is a seven-week fundraising challenge where high school student leaders raise money and awareness for the fight against blood cancers. The funds raised benefit the LLS mission: to find a cure for leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease, and Myeloma, and to improve the quality of life of patients and their families.

This year, 18 high school candidate teams came together to raise more than $830,000 toward the mission of the LLS.
