IN UNDER 180 SECONDS, THERE’S IMPACT WE CAN MAKE TOGETHER.

Blood Cancer Awareness Month

IN UNDER 180 SECONDS, THERE’S IMPACT WE CAN MAKE TOGETHER.

Every 180 seconds, someone is diagnosed with a blood cancer. Every blood cancer diagnosis turns lives upside down. When this happens, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) is here to help.

September is Blood Cancer Awareness Month, and now more than ever, we need your help as we help others. Since 1949, LLS has been the global leader in the fight against blood cancers, investing more than $1.3 billion in research. Our mission: cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin's disease, and myeloma, and improve the quality of life of patients and their families. And since 2017, LLS has supported more than 85% of blood cancer treatments approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). We fund groundbreaking research, provide education & support, and drive public policy and patient advocacy - all to help save and improve lives.
