The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) sponsors free community-based education programs for patients, their families, caregivers and healthcare professionals.
Local doctors and other healthcare professionals lead these programs, described below. You will get information about treatment options and learn how to strengthen your decision-making and coping skills, manage treatment side effects and find resources, including financial assistance.
Join us May 20th at the Massachusetts State House for Mission Day! Join other blood cancer survivors and advocates to educate MA legistlators on blood cancer issues and encourage them to support public policy initiatives important to the blood cancer community. REGISTER AT https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/6WGZWK6
Mission Day 2013 will connect LLS volunteers and advocates from across Massachusetts with the lawmakers who represent them on Beacon Hill. We need your help building strong, personal relationships with elected officials so that they will want to fight for policies and funding to improve the quality of life for blood cancer patients and their families.
Ever thought that you'd like to do more someday to help people with blood cancer? Well someday is today!
Join us and don't worry about being an experienced advocate. All you need to do is care about blood cancer - we'll make the rest easy and fun. Help us make the State House our house!
