1.2 million people in North America are living with, or are in remission from,
leukemia, Hodgkin lymphoma, non-Hodgkin lymphoma, myeloma and myelodysplastic
syndromes. Approximately every three minutes, someone new is diagnosed with
blood cancer. Approximately every 10 minutes, someone dies.
to research, survival rates for patients with many blood cancers have doubled,
tripled and even quadrupled since the early 1960s. Despite these advances,
about one third of patients with a blood cancer still do not survive even five
years after their diagnosis, which is why more funding is needed to bring
better therapies to patients, and faster.
