September Community Spotlight

The Federal News Network Community Spotlight is
Leukemia & Lymphoma Society

The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) is at the forefront of the fight to cure cancer. We are the largest nonprofit dedicated to creating a world without blood cancers. Since 1949, we’ve invested nearly $1.3 billion in groundbreaking research, pioneering many of today’s most innovative approaches.

September marks Blood Cancer Awareness Month, and blood cancer patients and their families need our help now more than ever. The global COVID-19 pandemic is magnifying the issues patients face beyond health concerns to include added distress, new financial worries, loneliness and uncertainty. As the leading source of free blood cancer information, education and support, LLS is amplifying our trusted services to help patients, survivors, caregivers, families and healthcare professionals when it’s needed most.

Contact us for one-on-one support from Information Specialists, Clinical Trial Nurse Navigators, and our registered dietitian at (800) 955-4572 or by live chat/email on

Childhood Cancer Awareness Month is also observed during September. LLS’s focus remains steadfast on The LLS Childrens’ Initiative, our $100 million multi-year endeavor to take on children’s cancer from every direction.
