Each dollar is a vote! Our mission is to not only raise the most money but also to bring attention to blood cancers like leukemia, which is the number one killer of children under the age of 20.
Many LLS supported therapies not only help blood cancer patients but are now approved to treat patients with rare forms of stomach and skin cancers, and noncancerous diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis and other autoimmune diseases. They're even being tested in clinical trials for patients with a range of cancers including lung, brain, breast, pancreatic and prostate cancers, and noncancerous diseases such as diabetes and lupus.
We really are changing the face of blood cancer!
