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 chapter offices located in Jacksonville and Orlando were founded to serve residents who have been touched by one of the blood cancers: leukemia, lymphoma and myeloma. The chapter serves the northern and central portion of the state which encompasses 38 counties.

I have always possessed an interest to volunteer a place where children and or people suffered from various illneses and sicknesses. However, I have a big heart of sympathy, empathy, love and compassion for those who lives with any type of illnesses. I feel that I would make a huge difference in sparing my time volunteering for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society if given the opportunity I know I would enjoy.
