Honored Hero Program

An Honored Hero is someone who provides inspiration and support for the fundraising programs of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.  This can be anyone who is being treated for, or is a survivor of, leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin's disease or myeloma.

As an Honored Hero, you will be asked to share your story with the people who are currently raising funds to support LLS's mission.  These people will be conducting their fundraising efforts in your honor.  You can provide them with the inspiration they need to be successful in their endeavors.

Honored Heroes can be as active and involved with the programs as they wish. You may be invited to attend a school assembly, a team training event, or the Light the Night Walk to share your story and to meet the people who are fundraising in your honor.  Heroes may also write letters, send emails or call the people who are fundraising for LLS to provide encouragement and share appreciation.

As an Honored Hero, you will gain a community of new friends who are helping to fund a cure for blood cancers.
