The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Rocky Mountain Chapter offers a wide range of free educational and support programs for patients, their families, caregivers and healthcare professionals.
If you've recently been diagnosed with a blood cancer, you may find it helpful to speak with someone who's been through treatment and learned how to manage the same disease. The Patti Robinson Kaufmann First Connection Program is a peer-to-peer program that links newly diagnosed patients and their families with trained volunteers who have experienced blood cancer firsthand and can understand your experience. Trained volunteer survivors offer caring support and information by sharing their special perspective on the recovery process. For more information, call us at 720-440-8630.
Open communication is critical for coping with the feelings that arise during illness. Family Support Groups feature sessions led by local healthcare professionals where you can share your concerns, fears, problems and experiences in a comfortable and caring setting. For more information, call us at 720-440-8630.
Our weekly two-hour online chats provide a friendly forum to share experiences and offer support for people living with non-Hodgkin lymphoma or chronic myeloid leukemia and for young adults (aged 18-39) living with blood cancer. Each chat is moderated by an oncology social worker. For more information, see Online Chats.
Returning to school after cancer treatment can be a tough adjustment for young survivors. The Trish Greene Back to School Program for Children with Cancer helps children and youth cope with life after treatment and teaches parents, classmates, teachers and healthcare professionals how to deal with the issues surrounding childhood cancer. Program videos and materials are available for students from preschool to high school. For more information, call us at 720-440-8630.
Patient Financial Aid
Following careful evaluation, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society has decided to suspend the Patient Financial Aid program. Effective March 1, 2014, applications are no longer being accepted.
We encourage you to find out if you are eligible for the LLS Co-Pay Assistance Program. Support for the Co-Pay program is based on the availability of funds by disease diagnosis.
If it is difficult for you to afford your prescription drug co-pays and other insurance-related expenses, you may be eligible for co-pay assistance from The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS).
Please contact LLS to find out if you are eligible for the LLS Co-Pay Assistance Program. For eligible patients, the Co-Pay Assistance Program may offer a larger amount of financial support for select diseases toward the cost of insurance co-payments and/or insurance premium costs for prescription drugs. For more information or to apply, please visit the Co-Pay Assistance page.
To be eligible for the LLS Co-Pay Assistance Program, patients must have:
-Prescription drug insurance coverage
-A household income that is at or below five times the U.S. Federal Poverty Level as adjusted by the Cost of Living Index (COLI)
-A confirmed blood cancer diagnosis that is covered by the LLS Co-Pay Assistance Program
Honored Hero Program
Our honored heroes provide inspiration and support for the LLS fundraising programs and are symbols of strength for others dealing with challenges in their lives. An honored hero is anyone who is being treated for, or is a survivor of, leukemia, lymphoma or myeloma.
You can participate on several levels, including sharing your story, creating artwork, writing letters or attending fundraising events. For more information, call us at 720-440-8630.
