According to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS), someone in the U.S. is diagnosed with a blood cancer every 3 minutes. 30 years ago the success rate for curing his form of leukemia (ALL) was about 15% and now it’s 85-90% and this is largely due to research and developments that LLS contributes too. For our second year fundraising, we’ve set a Keith Zars Pools company goal at $25,000 to aid their search for a cure.
A little about the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society
Their Mission: Cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and myeloma, and improve the quality of life of patients and their families. As there are no means of preventing or early screening for most blood cancers, the LLS research agenda is focused on finding cures.
Patient access: LLS is the leading source of free, highly specialized blood cancer information, education and support for patients, survivors, families and healthcare professionals.
The Policy and Advocacy Team drives policies that accelerate the development and approval of innovative treatments and ensure that patients have sustainable access to quality, affordable coordinated care. Their team is committed to ensuring that patients have access to adequate network of providers and services and are protected from high out-of-pocket costs that limit access to life-saving treatments.
Light The Night raises funds in support of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS).
When you or someone you love hears the words “you have cancer”…Itï¿½s one of the darkest moments in your life.
At Light The Night, their aim to bring light to the darkness of cancer through research and cures. Light The Night is a series of fundraising campaigns benefiting The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) funding of research to find blood cancer cures. They bring hope instead of despair by working to ensure access to treatments for all blood cancer patients. They bring communities together to celebrate those who are fighting the disease and to honor those we have lost.
