Leukemia and Lymphoma Society

I recently had the pleasure of talking to Louis J. DeGennaro, Past President & CEO, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS). He shared a lot of helpful information regarding LLS.

Seeking a cure for blood cancer

The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society is non-profit organization whose mission is to work toward a cure for leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin's disease and myeloma, and to improve the quality of life of blood cancer patients and their families. LLS funds blood cancer research, provides free information and support services, and advocates for those living with blood cancer.

Wishing you Health & Happiness!
