The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) recognizes the unique issues faced by blood cancer patients and caregivers from the moment of diagnosis throughout survivorship. These include psychosocial and emotional effects such as relationship stress, anxiety, depression, survivor guilt and more, which are further compounded by current events. Increased awareness about mental health and cancer can help patients and caregivers best advocate for treatment that meets the breadth of needs during the cancer journey and beyond. LLS provides education, support and resources that can help.
Our Information Specialists are social workers, nurses and health educators with expertise in blood cancers. They speak one-on-one with patients, caregivers and families to provide personalized support throughout diagnosis, treatment, and survivorship.
