I hope you and your family had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday. In our home, it is a time of great company, abundant food and reflection, for we have much to give thanks for.
I want to thank you for the support you've provided The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) this past year. You made it possible for LLS to provide supportive services, advocate for life-saving treatments and fund the most promising blood cancer research anywhere. Our investments in blood cancer research, from basic molecular studies, to translational research that moves promising work from the "bench to bedside" and collaborative projects that encourage work among researchers, are moving us toward our vision: a world without blood cancers.
We are grateful for your past contributions and welcome your support now more than ever. (https://donate.lls.org/ECommerce/newllsdonate.action) Why now? We have started a list --12 reasons for you to support LLS in 2012. (http://www.lls.org/#/waystohelp/yearendgiving/) But this is just a start. Please donate today (https://donate.lls.org/ECommerce/newllsdonate.action)and share your reasons to give with the LLS community. (http://community.lls.org/community/lls/reasonstogive)
Whether you are passionate about developing more, less toxic treatments that improve the quality of life for patients, or providing financial assistance that helps ease the burden during these tough economic times, your support will give help and hope to patients and their families.
Thank you for your generosity,
John E. Walter
President & CEO, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society
