WHEN SOMEONE IS DIAGNOSED WITH BLOOD CANCER, EVERY MINUTE MATTERS.

Blood Cancer Awareness Month

WHEN SOMEONE IS DIAGNOSED WITH BLOOD CANCER, EVERY MINUTE MATTERS.

Time is everything for patients, survivors, their families, and friends. And The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) is here with the resources and support to help make every minute matter.

September is Blood Cancer Awareness Month, a time to honor the 1.5 million people in the U.S. living with or in remission from blood cancers. For all those impacted by cancer, every minute matters—whether it’s racing against time to find the right treatment, achieving remission, or savoring quality moments with friends and family.

LLS has been racing to help patients and survivors since 1949, contributing more than $1.5 billion to cancer research and advancing more than 75 percent of the 100 blood cancer treatment approvals over the past five years. We fund groundbreaking research, provide free education and support, and drive public policy and patient advocacy—all to help save and improve lives.

We’re counting the minutes until blood cancer is a disease of the past. You can help us this very minute to make it happen.

During Blood Cancer Awareness Month, your gift will be matched.*
