Product Details


The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS) exists to find cures and ensure access to treatments for all blood cancer patients. LLS is the world's largest voluntary health agency dedicated to blood cancers. The LLS mission: Cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin's disease and myeloma, and improve the quality of life of patients and their families. LLS funds lifesaving blood cancer research around the world, provides free information and support services, and is the voice for all blood cancer patients seeking access to quality, affordable, coordinated care.

LLS has invested more than $1 billion in blood cancer research, approximately $79.8 million in 2014 alone. Research funded by LLS has played a role in advances such as the discovery and development chemotherapy, bone marrow and stem cell transplantation and new, targeted oral therapies and immunotherapies.

Nearly 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.

Thanks 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.
