Caroline Barber

Wichita, Kansas

Caroline Barber, 17, of Wichita, Kansas, a senior at Eisenhower High School, participated in the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s “Student of the Year” fundraising competition, through which she secured corporate sponsorships and personal donations and hosted six fundraising events. Caroline, who ultimately raised more than $40,000 for her cause in seven weeks, was inspired to participate in this project by two young people in her community who had cancer.
