Jerri Kropf, Lymphoma Survivor
In February 2016, I was admitted to the emergency room after experiencing unusual symptoms. Shortly after, I was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma.
I can still remember the oncologists going over my prognosis, and a representative from The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) who was there during this difficult time to keep me filled with words of encouragement and positivity. The next six months were filled with radiation and chemotherapy. At times I was in excruciating pain, but I am proud to say I am now in remission.
I am forever thankful for the support I received from LLS since my cancer diagnosis. From the information they provided to me about co-pay, to the guidance and education about additional financial assistance, the organization had a huge impact on helping me get through the hardest time in my life.
Sawyer Sanchez, Leukemia Survivor
While on vacation across the country, I was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia (AML). I was immediately flown home and started receiving chemotherapy. With my parents at the hospital around the clock, the rest of my family turned to The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) for help.
LLS was the comforting voice that helped my family and me navigate the complex treatment process. LLS’s Information Specialists were always ready and available to respond to our emails and phone calls. They provided us with information about transplant centers, doctors, resources, and sent written materials to help with fundraisers, transplant donor drives and clinical trials.
I was fortunate to receive help from many groups and individuals, but LLS continues to be a significant resource. I am now seven months removed from my transplant and doing great. My doctors continue to reduce my medications, and I am regaining my strength and stamina. I am excited that I will return to high school this fall for my senior year.
