VOLUNTEERS ARE THE HEART OF OUR MISSION

And everyone they impact is feeling the love.

We’re always feeling the love for the special people who volunteer for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) – for they truly are the heart and soul of our organization.

Whether they are handing out lanterns or booklets, hiking, biking or climbing for donations, comforting, or advocating for patients, our volunteers are always moving our mission forward. Every hour donated; every effort made on behalf of LLS represents thousands of selfless acts of love. We couldn’t be more thankful for their impact and we hope our volunteers past and present feel the love from us all year long.

LLS was one of the organizations that supported me throughout my cancer journey… Volunteering with LLS is rewarding, as I get to help other families going through cancer as I did.

WITH YOUR HELP…

Patients can access cutting-edge treatments; caregivers are receiving the support they need to take care of themselves and their loved ones; and families know they are not alone as they face the most challenging moments of their lives. You give them the compassion and the hope they need.
