Please help me support The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Light The Night Walk by donating towards my fundraising efforts today. You can help bring us closer to living in a world without cancers!

Did you know that there are nearly 1.3 million people in the U.S. living with, or are in remission from a blood cancer? I want to see the end of blood cancer and cancer itself within my lifetime. I have lost too many family members to cancer, and it's time for us to find a cure! In an effort to find cures for all cancers, here's a statistic that sticks out to me...

"Since 2000, approximately 40% of ALL the newly U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) approved cancer drugs were for blood cancer, and some are now being used to treat other forms of cancer and non-malignant diseases. A win for blood cancers; therefore, is a win for the cancer community overall." - Dr. Louis J. DeGennaro, PhD, President and CEO, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society

You can make a difference! Here are a few ways to help support LLS:

  • Learn about and help LLS advocate for policies that accelerate treatments and cures. Go here- www.lls.org/advocate
  • Encourage family and friends with cancer to participate in clinical trials. Patients and caregivers can call (free of charge) our Information Specialists for guidance at (800) 955-4572 or by visiting www.lls.org/informationspecialists
  • Volunteer and campaign with LLS- like participating in Light The Night!
  • Support blood cancer cures by donating
     

Every dollar invested is used in a number of ways in the fight against blood cancers:

  • Helping patients and their families. LLS provides information and support to guide patients from diagnosis through survivorship, and helps ensure access to current treatments and clinical trials.
  • Improving access to affordable, quality and coordinated care. As the voice for all blood cancer patients, LLS achieves groundbreaking results for patients by advocating for legislation at the state and federal level.
  • Encouraging young scientists to pursue blood cancer research. Grants to young scientists help grow research talent even as federal research funding becomes increasingly limited.
  • Investing in immunotherapies and precision medicine. Developing the most cutting-edge immunotherapy and precision medicine treatments in order to find cures.

 

Thank you in advance for your donation! You are truly bringing LIGHT to the darkness of cancer.
