My 10 year old sister has lymphoma. Through treatments and emotional struggles of her family the society gave us support. I cannot thank them enough.
My sister is still living & fighting this horrible disease. Please pray for her if you have time.
My grandfather passed away from this type of cancer about 5 years ago and the closer we are to finding a cure the more relief we will have for individuals with it and their families. it is very hard to lose someone you love
My father is a doctor and deals for Cancer and I have grown up appreciating medicine my whole life. This organization is perfect for it and I have grown around cancer being a huge topic so I know how important it really is on curing it. I can't stress enough on how many patients need our support. I have volunteered and helped as much as I could and I encourage you to do so, too!
I participated in the LLS's Team in Training in 2005 because my step-mother had a form of leukemia, which later turned into smooth muscle cancer. It was an incredible experience, and something that I am so grateful to have participated in.
My sister has fought Hodgekins Lymphoma cancer since 2009 and just this year was put into remission. The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society has helped us so much. My mother ran the Nation's Triathlon in Washington DC in 2010 and it was a weekend none of us will forget as she crossed the finish line holding my sister's hand. God Bless everyone who is fighting this battle, or has lost the fight. It's a battle that no one can understand unless it's happened in your family. Thank you to the Leukemia and Lymphoma society for supporting our journey and my sister's new journey into recovery and getting her life back!
