The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society is at the forefront of the fight to cure cancer. We are the largest nonprofit dedicated to creating a world without blood cancers. Since 1949, we’ve invested nearly $1.3 billion in groundbreaking research, pioneering many of today’s most innovative approaches. Cancer is a heck of an opponent. It’s a bully. But we aren’t afraid of a fight. It’s elusive. But our focus never fades. It’s deadly. But we are known cancer killers. Since 1949, we’ve pioneered groundbreaking research that leads us to believe we will find the cures for cancer in our blood. We were born to defeat this opponent. We are The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
Beating cancer is in our blood.
