Leukemia & Lymphoma Society - Connecticut Westchester Hudson Valley Chapter

Patient & Family Outreach Volunteer

At The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS), we're passionate about our mission: to cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin's disease and myeloma, and improve the quality of life of patients and their families. We fulfill this mission every day by providing information, resources and support to those affected by blood cancers.

LLS Patient Access volunteers help in so many ways: supporting patients, family members, healthcare professionals, our community; and always setting the standard for compassion and kindness. You can volunteer in your local chapter office, in the community, or from your home.

Join us as a volunteer, and join the cause that’s having the most impact on finding new ways to fight cancer - not someday, but today. Sign up here: www.lls.org/PAvolunteer.
