Huge progress has been made in treating patients with blood cancers, with survival rates for many having doubled or tripled, and in some cases quadrupled, since LLS was founded in 1949. Yet, more than 1 million Americans are currently battling a blood cancer, the #3 cause of cancer death, with leukemia alone causing more deaths than any other cancer among children and young adults under the age of 20. Every three minutes someone is diagnosed with a blood cancer, and every nine minutes someone dies of this disease.
With the support of corporate sponsors, individuals, and friends & family teams, the 2017 Scott Firefighter Stairclimb raised over $2.4 million – exceeding our financial goal.
