Since its inception in 1991, the LLS Firefighter Stairclimb has raised over $20 million.
100% of all proceeds raised through this event directly benefits the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
LLS research investment has played a critical role in advancing therapies for blood cancer patients, including targeted and immunotherapies.
As there are no means of preventing or early screening for most blood cancers, the LLS research agenda is focused on finding cures. LLS drives research in areas of unmet medical need and helps to bridge the gap between academic discovery and drug development.
We fund research grants to support every discipline in the blood cancers, and we partner directly with biotechnology companies to accelerate therapies.
The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society is committed to providing information, resources, and support to those affected by blood cancers. Information Specialists, co-pay assistance, peer-to-peer support, and online communities provide an array of support options for patients and caregivers.Learn More
The LLS Office of Public Policy is charged with pursuing LLS's mission through advocacy aimed at governmental decisionmakers. LLS will continue to focus on using advocacy to work toward a cure and improve the lives of blood cancer patients.
To advance its policy goals, LLS encourages its volunteers, friends and other supporters to contact their elected representatives - in Congress and in state legislatures - to share with them the impact that blood cancers have on millions of Americans each year and to urge responsible policies that will address the serious burdens of these diseases.Learn More
