For more information on LLS’s mission, please visit www.lls.org not someday, but today.
The mission of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) is: Cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin's disease and myeloma, and improve the quality of life of patients and their families.
More than 1.1 million people in the United States are living with, or are in remission from, a blood cancer.
To date, LLS has invested more than $1 billion in research. The five-year survival rate for children under 15 with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) has improved from 3% in 1964 to 90% today.
As there are no means of preventing or early screening for most blood cancers, the LLS research agenda is focused on finding cures. From 2001 through 2013, nearly 40% of new anti-cancer treatments were FDA-approved for blood cancer patients, more first approvals than for any other group of cancer patients.
