In addition to gifts of flowers and candy this Mother's Day, consider gifts of hope and health!
Eight years ago, Jane was diagnosed with lymphoma just three weeks after giving birth to her second son. In short order, Jane and her husband were packing up their newborn and a three-year-old for the first of a series of trips to Houston for chemotherapy.
Within two years, Jane's routine moved from active treatment to active training for the Austin Half-Marathon through The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's (LLS) Team In Training, a way for her to raise money to help accelerate finding cures for other patients. " I value scientific research," Jane reports enthusiastically. " I know that a relapse would require new treatment."
LLS is partnering on a promising new treatment with a biotechnology company and we need your help. We're supporting a late-phase clinical trial that could lead to approval of a new drug that might double survival for some blood cancer patients.
LLS looks to accelerate the trial by a full year, providing a life-saving difference to patients who have few other treatment options. LLS has raised 70 percent of the funds needed and is seeking the remaining $1.5 million to hasten the completion of this trial. Your donation can speed progress and provide hope to cancer patients like Jane.
Thank you for your generosity.
