One of the roles for each Team In Training member is to be an ambassador for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. Part of our duties include raising awareness of their mission to defeat all form of blood cancer, while supporting those who are forced to fight for their lives.
With over $814 million invested, the LLS is one of the largest investors in research aimed at helping all blood cancer patients live better, longer lives. However, they didn't do that alone. They've had community support since 1949, and could only invest in cancer research with donations from people who wanted to help.
In 2011 alone, the LLS invested nearly 80 million dollars in research across the globe. This funding was distributed across all blood cancers, including; Leukemias 33 million, Lymphomas 26 million, Myelomas 9 million, Myelodysplastic syndromes / myeloproliferative neoplasms 11 million.
Over the past 5 years, Jenelle and I have supported the LLS. We strongly believe in the mission and feel as though they truly make a difference in people's lives. Which is why we donate our time and money to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
This week we sent out informational letters to our friends and family. It's our hope that these will introduce you to a great organization, and that you will support them in their cause to defeat all forms of blood cancer.
