Take action in the fight against cancer by getting involved with LLS.
February 4th is World Cancer Day, a global milestone designed to unite the world in the fight against cancer. Together, we can help save lives by raising awareness and educating others.
At The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS), our goal is a world without blood cancers. Once unimaginable, new breakthrough treatments and targeted therapies are being developed and approved each year. Some of the therapies first approved for blood cancer patients are now helping patients with other types of cancers and serious diseases, too.
We've made tremendous progress, but there is still so much more to do.
19.3 million new cancer cases are expected to be diagnosed worldwide by 2025.
Globally, nearly 1 in 6 deaths is due to cancer.
LLS funds researchers in nine different countries around the world.
To date, LLS has invested more than $1.2 billion in research to advance lifesaving treatments and cures.
World Cancer Day is an important reminder that even a small action can make a big difference in the lives of cancer patients and their families.
There are so many ways that you can help bring us closer to cancer cures.
