Mission Statement

To Eradicate Leukemia

Description

CLRA has been helping Americans for over 50 years. The Children’s Leukemia Research Association, Inc., formerly known as the National Leukemia Research Association, was founded in 1965 to support research efforts towards finding the causes and cure for Leukemia. Our Co-Pay Assistance Program helps with leukemia-related medical bills that are listed under our Covered Treatments and Services. Upon approval of each claim, payment will be made to the patient, guardian or medical provider.

Each year, CLRA's Medical Advisory Committee, consisting of prominent internationally known and respected hematologists, reviews submitted research proposals from doctors nationwide.

Using your contributions, we fund research grants for doctors who are conducting the most promising research into leukemia, in the hopes of isolating the causes and finding a cure for this dread disease.

The objectives of this committee are to direct the funds of the Association into the most promising projects, and where funding would not duplicate other funding sources.

With your help, we are getting closer every day! Because of the support of friends like you, the scientific community is making incredible strides in developing chemotherapy regimens that are extending the lives of leukemia patients. Not everyone under treatment goes into remission but our research grants are funding the examinations into why this is so, and how we can continue to combat leukemia.

The opportunity to help Children's Leukemia Research Association allowed me to update my resume and gave me accredited volunteering hours for my job. Even better is that I am helping Children who really could use it to find something to smile about.
