The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society: Impacting Blood Cancers and Beyond
Date:2/19/2013

tologic malignancies with a unique link to the cancer research community. Many innovations such as multi-drug chemotherapy and stem cell transplantation started as blood cancer therapies. In fact, nearly 50 percent of all cancer drugs newly approved by the US Food & Drug Administration (FDA) in the last 12 years were first approved for blood cancers. "Blood cancer research is a gateway to treatments and even cures for many other cancers, as well as some inflammatory diseases, such as rheumatoid arthritis (RA)," explains DeGennaro. "LLS and our partners are pioneering cutting-edge cancer research at the cellular and molecular level, which has the capacity to offer significant contributions beyond even blood cancers."

"Someday is Today"

"We felt it was time to put a stake in the ground, and to shine the spotlight on the urgency and accomplishments we have made toward finding cures for blood cancers. 'Someday is Today' is our platform to rally support for this cause," explains John Walter , LLS chief executive officer. "People talk about curing cancer at some point in the future.  But, for LLS, someday is today. Contributions made to this organization – through partners, volunteers and generous donors – are driving cures right now. The reality is, if you want to reduce the incidence of lung cancer, stop smoking.  If you want to reduce the incidence of melanoma, use sun block. If you want to prevent the incidence of blood cancer, invest in a cure."

The "Someday is Today" initiative will launch this month nationwide, with emphasis in New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Washington DC, and Dallas. The platform was developed by LLS in conjunction with branding agency Interplanetary, and is being supported by TV and radio
