The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society: Impacting Blood Cancers and Beyond
Date:2/19/2013

s as soon as possible. LLS works in concert with academic investigators, medical centers and pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies to move promising therapies quickly from the laboratory into clinical trials and, ultimately, to patients.

LLS continues to support and fund the world's best and brightest academic scientists and award grants based on merit to advance progress in all areas of blood cancer research, and at all stages from basic science to clinical trials. Through our grants programs we support the development of the next generation of first rate cancer researchers.

Proof of LLS's cure-focused, patient-centered infrastructure is apparent from the allocation of its funds. Last year, 78 percent of the money spent by LLS went to research, patient and community services, advocacy and education. Its co-pay assistance program provided $44.2 million to almost 14,000 patients in need. LLS's Office of Public Policy team advocates for policies that help speed the approval process for new blood cancer therapies and ensure access to quality, affordable and coordinated care for patients.

"Ultimately, cancer affects everyone," said Walter. "We all have an opportunity to impact a cure for this disease now. Someday truly is today."
