The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) continues to monitor coronavirus (COVID-19) developments. As a health organization, one of our highest priorities is the well-being of our employees, volunteers, donors, partners and the patients we serve-especially as many blood cancer patients are immunocompromised.
Given the escalating cases of coronavirus COVID-19 and concern among our staff and communities across the country, LLS is postponing our in-person fundraising events scheduled through April 30th, and postponing in-person events for patients, caregivers and healthcare professionals through May 15th. Our staff will be working from home until March 31st. When possible, we will provide virtual opportunities to continue to drive forward our important mission work.
We are following vigilantly guidance from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the World Health Organization (WHO) and local public health officials as we continue to evaluate our plans and act in a timely and responsible way.
