About The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society:
- While other organizations might target prevention or early detection, LLS invests in cures because most blood cancers cannot be prevented or detected early. Research funded by LLS is responsible for the blood cancer survival rate doubling and tripling; in some cases, the survival rate has even quadrupled.
- Blood cancer research has a big impact because it’s easier to study cancer in blood than in solid tumors. In fact, almost half of the new cancer drugs approved in the U.S. since 2000 were first approved to treat a blood cancer.
- This past year alone, LLS invested nearly $6,000,000 in lifesaving research projects at UCSF and UC Berkeley. Worldwide, we invested close to $50 million to support the most promising blood cancer research and clinical trials.
All donations are greatly appreciated and are tax deductible. They'll not only support LLS research but patient services, advocacy, public and professional education, and community services as well. For more information about LLS, please visit lls.org/gba. On behalf of blood cancer patients and families everywhere, thank you for your support!
