The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society is at the forefront of the fight to cure cancer. We are the largest nonprofit dedicated to creating a world without blood cancers.

Beating Cancer is in Our Blood

Cancer is a heck of an opponent.

It’s a bully. But we aren’t afraid of a fight.
It’s elusive. But our focus never fades.
It’s deadly. But we are known cancer killers.

Since 1949, we’ve pioneered groundbreaking research that leads
us to believe we will find the cures for cancer in our blood.

We were born to defeat this opponent.

How to Get Involved

A science-based, service learning program for students ranging from Kindergarten through High School. Since 1993 students and educators throughout the country have raised more than $368 million in support of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) goal to cure blood cancer and improve the lives of patients and their families. Elementary and middle schools also receive the LLS STEM curriculum to incorporate into their lesson plans throughout the school year.

At Light The Night, it is our aim to bring light to the darkness of cancer through research and cures. Light The Night is a series of fundraising campaigns benefiting The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) funding of research to find blood cancer cures. We bring hope instead of despair by working to ensure access to treatments for all blood cancer patients. We bring communities together to celebrate those who are fighting the disease and to honor those we have lost. We are taking steps to end cancer.
