CHAMPIONS FOR MYELOMA AWARENESS & CARE
A champion for blood cancer patients, survivors, caregivers, and families, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) is at the forefront of raising awareness and funding research for myeloma. Myeloma is one of over 100 different types of blood cancers and despite treatment advances, it remains incurable. Myeloma occurs twice as often among Black Americans than White Americans and while there are numerous treatment options, recent studies show that Black Americans are significantly less likely to receive the latest treatment therapies and more likely to experience treatment delays.
LLS is leading the way to change that by:
- driving new breakthroughs and cures for myeloma
- raising awareness through community-based education and outreach programs
- offering free clinical trial support and guidance for the latest treatments
- bringing free resources to communities at higher risk for myeloma and that are underserved by the healthcare system
Until there is a cure, we will be THE champions for myeloma awareness and care.
