Leukemia and Lymphoma
Every year a society called The leukemia and Lymphoma Society, or LLS, does a fundraiser in downtown Dallas called a Light The Night Walk which is a fundraiser that helps provide for all of the amazing research that they do. This society helps do research for people who have be diagnosed with leukemia and lymphoma. In 2015, 55,000 people were diagnosed with leukemia and 1.2 million people are living with it right now. In the past few years the LLS has raised the survival rate from 14% in 1963 to 90.4% in 2015 from people who have been diagnosed with these types of cancer. Researchers have worked hundreds of hours to find this cure and they are still working on making it better.
