The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) is the largest voluntary health organization dedicated to funding research, finding cures and ensuring access to treatments for blood cancer patients.
Since 1949 LLS has been on the forefront of blood cancer advances such as chemotherapies and stem cell transplantation leading the way to the targeted therapies and immunotherapies that are saving thousands of lives today.
LLS is changing the landscape of cancer with more than 300 active research projects that explore different avenues of new and adventurous research; ones with promise and ones that will save lives not someday, but today.
Whenever we talk about cancer, we always use the same word. Someday. Someday there will be a cure. Someday we won’t lose the people we love. But when is someday? With LLS’s research partnerships and collaborations with pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies, patients support services and advocates working for blood cancer patients everywhere, someday is today.
Kristen Tilton was diagnosed with Acute Promyelocytic Leukemia in March 2009. The day she was diagnosed, she was admitted to Brigham and Women’s Hospital and spent 21 days in the hospital. From there she underwent 7 months of intensive chemotherapy, endured countless side effects, and continued with an additional year of medications taking 400 pills per month. After all of this she survived. The type of Leukemia Kristen had was deadly 50 years ago with a 100% mortality rate, to now have a 95% cure rate because of research that was done in the past. When Kristen was diagnosed, because of her prognosis, Tilton Ski Team was created and fundraising for the Leukemia & Lymphoma society began. We were so grateful and know first hand how important this research is and how it can save lives. Since Kristen’s diagnosis she has married and had a beautiful little girl, Alexia, who wouldn’t be here without the research that had been done in the past, this is why we are trying to do our part for others!
