The Word:


Volunteer in Your Area

Help us help people with blood cancer and their families. Our dedicated community volunteers are the heart and soul of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS).  There are many different ways you can participate in Washington/Alaska events and make a difference in the lives of those touched by blood cancer.
