Mission Statement

To cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin's Disease and myeloma, and improve the quality of life of patients and their families.

Description

The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, headquartered in White Plains, NY, with 68 chapters in the United States and Canada, is the world's largest voluntary health organization dedicated to funding blood cancer reserach and providing education and patient services. Since its founding in 1949, LLS has invested more than $550 million in research specifically targeting leukemia, lymphoma and myeloma. Last year along, LLS made 5.1 million contacts with patients, caregivers and healthcare professionals.

As a nonprofit, we rely on the generosity of individuals, corporations and foundations. Seventy-five percent of our total expenses support cancer research, education, advocacy and patient services. Major, annual fundraising campaigns include Team In Training, Light the Night Walk, School & Youth Programs, Man & Woman of the Year and The Leukemia Cup Regatta.
