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.
The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Illinois Region serves Illinois residents who have been touched by blood cancers: leukemia, lymphoma and myeloma. Volunteers are our partners in this crusade to end cancer. Sign up to day to help us help people with blood cancer and their families, and become a part of the dedicated community at the heart of LLS.
When I got to the event, it was rather unorganized. The woman in charge didn't ask our names till after she gave us our order, that's not a big deal to me but I could see how others would be upset.
The only frustrating part was that we were constantly being told to sell more raffle tickets and to push for the $50 "Diamond Raffle" to all the of folks whom already had purchased them. This was from the woman whom put the event together, not the society. Would have been nice if the advert for this said "Sales skills required" instead running games.
Overall it was a good experience, Looking forward to the lantern 5k.
