We asked our supporters to share their reason for giving to LLS. This was Melissa's:
"So no one has to hear the words 'you have leukemia.' I am a 2 year Lymphoblastic Leukemia survivor!"
With the generous support of people like you, LLS makes sure all blood cancer patients have access to the most up-to-date information on treatments, clinical trials, and services that meet their unique needs from diagnosis and throughout their cancer journey. And blood cancer can wreak havoc on family finances. Some patients have difficulty paying for transportation to their treatment center. LLS patient assistance can help.
While we help patients diagnosed each day, LLS is also accelerating the development of new drugs and therapies. LLS is funding impactful research, from discoveries to new treatment approvals that are helping blood cancer patients live better, longer lives. And many blood cancer advances are cross-cutting, also helping patients with solid tumors and other serious illnesses.
It's a critical time for blood cancer research and your help is crucial in bringing us closer to our vision - 'A world without blood cancers.' The 12 reasons to support LLS in 2012, will illustrate why we think LLS is worthy of your consideration.
Thank you for your generosity and Happy Holidays!
