Lady Antebellum, the Grammy-award winning country music trio, have joined with The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) for a new public service campaign to raise awareness and dollars for lifesaving cancer research.
All three band members, Hillary Scott, Charles Kelley, and Dave Haywood, have a strong connection to the LLS mission, each with a family member diagnosed with cancer in the past two years. In the new PSA, Scott talks openly about losing her grandfather to acute myeloid leukemia and his influence on the group. Having been impacted by cancer recently, they share their hope that cancer will be cured in their lifetime.
“Like most people, cancer has touched someone close to each of us recently,” said Haywood. “So, it’s something that’s important to us and we’re proud to support The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s efforts to raise funds for cancer research.”
Critical treatment innovations have originated through blood cancer research, including radiation, chemotherapy, stem cell transplantation, and new-targeted therapies, and significant progress continues to be made. Blood cancer research has been a gateway to finding therapies for many types of cancers. Half of the cancer drugs approved by the FDA in the last decade were first approved to treat patients with blood cancer, and many of these drugs are now being used and/or showing promise as treatments for patients with solid tumors and serious autoimmune diseases.
The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society® (LLS) is the world’s largest voluntary health agency dedicated to blood cancer. The LLS mission: Cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and myeloma, and improve the quality of life of patients and their families. LLS funds lifesaving blood cancer research around the world and provides free information and support services. Founded in 1949 and headquartered in White Plains, NY, LLS has chapters throughout the United States and Canada.
