Every three minutes someone is diagnosed with a blood cancer and every ten minutes someone dies from that same disease. The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS) Midwest Chapter is dedicated to finding a cure for leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and myeloma in efforts to improve the quality of life of the more than 3,800 local children and adults that are diagnosed each year. The great news is that the LLS Midwest Chapter has awarded more than $2.1 million in research grants in Missouri programs currently working to find cures. Thanks to research and access to better treatments, survival rates for many patients have doubled, tripled and even quadrupled since 1960.
