When you or someone you love hears the words “you have cancer”…It’s one of the darkest moments in your life. In case you didn’t know, cancer hasn’t been cancelled. In fact, cancer patients need The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society now more than ever.
The LLS mission is simple: Cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and myeloma, and improve the quality of life of patients and their families—serving as the voice for all blood cancer patients.
LLS is at the forefront of the fight to cure cancer and is also the largest funder of cutting-edge research to advance cures. More than $1.3 billion has been invested in research to date (approximately 30 million has been invested in local San Diego research institutions). LLS leads in advancing breakthroughs in immunotherapy, genomics and personalized medicine. This research saves lives.
These revolutionary new treatments originally discovered through blood cancer research are now being used to treat many other types of cancers such as bone, brain, breast and ovarian cancers.
How do are these breakthroughs funded?
It is the aim of LLS to bring light to the darkness of cancer through their annual Light The Night campaign, an experience that brings survivors, those who have lost loved ones and the general community end to cancer together to celebrate and remember. This year, Light The Night will be held virtually in San Diego on Saturday, November 7th at 7:00 PM.
Light The Night is an excellent way to bring your company, employees and friends and family together for a great cause. Join in this event by starting a team, or join as an individual and raise funds support the end to cancer.
