Mission Statement

The mission of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) is: Cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin's disease and myeloma, and improve the quality of life of patients and their families.

We work tirelessly to find cures and ensure patients can access the lifesaving treatments they need. When someone experiences the fear and uncertainty of a blood cancer diagnosis, we provide hope, compassion, education and support. Our impact is felt beyond blood cancer. The breakthrough treatments we helped advance for blood cancers are now improving the lives of people affected by many types of cancer.


Volunteers are our partners in the crusade to end cancer.

In 2017, LLS volunteers made a significant impact while selflessly dedicating their time and talent to achieve our mission. With countless ways to engage, from fundraising to providing patient support, our volunteers are changing the landscape of cancer.

The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Greater San Francisco Bay Area Chapter was founded in 1972 and serves Bay Area residents who have been touched by one of the blood cancers: leukemia, lymphoma and myeloma. The Chapter's San Francisco office serves San Francisco, Marin, Alameda and Contra Costa counties. The Chapter's Redwood Wine Country branch office serves Sonoma, Napa, Solano, Lake, Mendocino and Humboldt counties.
