The new generation of cancer patients is not just surviving - they’re thriving!
One such cancer survivor is Sadie, a college student and race car driver. Sadie is in remission from acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) because of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s efforts to fund research leading to lifesaving treatments. Sadie is living proof that advances in treatment are making the chances of surviving much better than they used to be. In 1964, the survival rate for children with leukemia (ALL) was 3%. Today, it’s 90%.
Someday there’ll be a cure. Someday we won’t lose the people we love. Someday. It’s the word we use whenever we talk about cancer. But someday is not that far off. In fact, for many people, someday is today.
The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) researchers are accelerating therapies that are saving lives today. LLS has invested nearly $1 billion to accelerate cancer treatments once thought impossible. Partnering with universities, medical centers and pharmaceutical and biotech companies, LLS is leading the way to advances and cures by funding promising research and helping to ensure that patients have access to treatments.
