Leukemia and Lymphoma Society

Funding Blood Cancer Research
Mission:

The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) is the world's largest voluntary health organization dedicated to funding blood cancer research, education and patient services. LLS's mission: Cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin's disease and myeloma, and improve the quality of life of patients and their families. Since the first funding in 1954, LLS has awarded more than $600 million in research funding.

In 2009, LLS celebrates its 60th anniversary with the launch of a special Web site, lls.org/innovation. Moving forward, our goal for the future is one in which LLS has transformed the lives of people with blood cancer and the healthcare landscape that patients, families and caregivers navigate. Your stories are a part of our history and our future. We urge patients, caregivers and our fundraisers alike to share them and celebrate our mission.
