March is Myeloma Awareness Month. The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) is at the forefront of the fight against myeloma. We’ve seen significant progress over the past decade, with new therapies resulting in better overall survival. Our vision is to transform treatment and care for all those impacted by myeloma.

  • LLS remains committed to investing in the most promising myeloma research to find cures. Last year alone, LLS committed $31.7 million in research dedicated to myeloma, spanning the most pioneering science including immunotherapy, genomics and personalized medicine.
  • LLS provides myeloma support, resources, education, and community based outreach about myeloma for patients, families and caregivers to help patients live better, longer lives.

 Myeloma Link

African Americans have twice the incidence of myeloma as white Americans. What’s more, recent studies show that African Americans are significantly less likely to receive the latest treatments, and are more likely to experience treatment delays.

The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) is dedicated to helping African Americans with myeloma access the treatment and care they need and improving quality of life. LLS provides free tools and resources to help patients and caregivers navigate the treatment landscape more effectively and cope with the disease.
