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. LLS is the world's largest voluntary health agency dedicated to blood cancer.

Description

Making every cent count. Make Change!

Across the United States and Canada, 27,482 schools - more than 15.8 million students from kindergarten to high school - participated in the programs during the 2011-12 school year, raising a record-breaking $28.7 million. Students participating in Pennies for Patients or Pasta for Pennies presented by Olive Garden collect spare change to help fund research seeking cures for blood cancer, including leukemia, which causes more deaths than any other cancer among children and young adults under the age of 20. The funds also support LLS's patient services programs.
