There are hundreds of thousands living among us with blood cancer. People who, 60 years ago, wouldn’t be among us. Today they enjoy normal life and manage their condition with a daily pill.
Forty years ago, there was a 97% mortality rate for childhood leukemia. Today, 90% of children with leukemia live a natural lifespan.
This is an extraordinary moment. One we have been working towards since 1949, when The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society was founded.
In our 63 years, we have helped advance nearly every drug used in the fight against blood cancer. Thanks to the funds people continue to invest in us, we have spent a billion dollars to accelerate new cancer treatments and bring healing therapies once thought impossible.
Simply put, we are closer than ever to cures for many kinds of blood cancers. We are on the brink of historic breakthroughs that will literally change people’s lives.
Cures today. Not someday. That’s the goal. And you are at the heart of it.
Help us finish the job.
