What We Do

Investing in blood cancer research: LLS has invested more than $814 million in research.

  • Research funded by LLS has led or contributed to advances such as chemotherapy, bone marrow and stem cell transplantation and new, targeted oral therapies such as Gleevec®, Rituxan®, Velcade®, Thalidomid®, Revlimid®, Istodax®, Zolinza®,Dacogen® and Vidaza®.
  • Translational Research Program, which funds research with a high probability of producing innovative patient treatments in an accelerated time frame, have directly contributed to many breakthrough cancer treatments.

Providing critical information and support for patients and their families: LLS provides patients, families, and healthcare professionals with the latest information on leukemia, lymphoma, myeloma, myelodysplastic syndromes, and myeloproliferative neoplasms.  We put people together with experts through Web-casts and teleconferences, and provided professional education through seminars, to extend the latest findings to a broader professional audience. Patient financial aid and Co-Pay Assitance Program offer eligible patients assistance to help with their financail need.  

Advocating for issues impacting blood cancer patients: With more than 56,000 advocacy volunteers throughout the country, our voice is being heard by those responsible for legislation to fund blood cancer research and educational programs.

 Why we do it: The need is critical. An estimated 1,012,533 people in the United States are living with, or are in remission from, leukemia, Hodgkin lymphoma, non-Hodgkinlymphoma or myeloma. Approximately every four minutes, someone new is diagnosed with blood cancer. Approximately every 10 minutes, someone dies. Leukemia causes more deaths than any other cancer among children, adolescents and young adults under the age of 20. Lymphomas are the most common blood cancers and incidence increases with age.
