Leukemia & Lymphoma Society

lls-logo-color

The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) is dedicated to finding a cure for leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and myeloma. They also work to provide support to patients and families.

It was research that was funded in part by LLS that led to the development of Gleevec as a treatment for CML. Without this drug, our story would most likely have been very different.

I have been on the board of the Minneapolis chapter of LLS for four years and am currently the board chair. Betsy and I have supported LLS through the Light the Night Walk, and by participating in a number of Team in Training events including:

Lifetime Fitness Triathlon (twice)
Lake Tahoe Century Ride
Twin Cities Marathon
Nike Women’s Half Marathon (Betsy twice, Brian once)

In thanks for all that they do to fight blood cancers and help families, I am donating a portion of the proceeds from every book sold to support LLS.
