Someday Is Today
Goal LLS is trying to achieve

History behind LLS
There was a boy who was 16 years of age who was battling Leukemia and 5 years later his parents grew frustrated because there was no effective treatment to treat Leukemia.
The organization was born out of a family's grief following the death of there teenage son.
Success and Failures
Success- Back in 1949 blood cancer diagnosis was almost fatal but now survival rates have doubled, tripled and even quadruped for blood patients.
Failure- They have not yet to make a cure for the diseases.
They are pretty dedicated in helping with the funding for blood cancer.
Every September LLS observes blood cancer awareness month as a way to raise awareness money
LLS is trying to advance research to find cures and provide access to the breakthrough treatments for blood cancer patients.
Leukemia & Lymphoma Society is just trying to improve the quality of life those with blood cancer, their friends and family.
