PURSUING CURES FOR MYELOMA

The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) is at the forefront of the fight against myeloma. We’ve seen significant progress over the past decade, with new therapies resulting in better overall survival. LLS remains committed to investing in the most promising myeloma research to find cures and providing free information, education and support for patients, families and caregivers to help patients live better, longer lives. Our vision is to transform treatment and care for all those impacted by myeloma.

BEATING CANCER IS IN OUR BLOOD

At LLS, our mission is to cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin's disease and myeloma, and improve the quality of life of patients and their families. Here are some examples of how we work toward this mission.
