Save the Date: Advocating for Blood Cancer Patients

The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) will host a three-day conference in Washington, DC, May 5-7, 2014, focusing on advances in research, lifesaving therapies, advocacy, volunteer leadership and public engagement. This is an important opportunity for our organization to showcase our commitment to finding cures and ensuring access to treatments for all blood cancer patients, through three major pillars: leadership training, advocacy and research. 

Our Research Symposium, Bridging the Gap from Bench to Bedside: The Road to Cures, will be held on Monday, May 5.

Our Volunteer Leadership Day, Tuesday, May 6, Cancer Ends With Me, will feature inspirational special guests, including survivors and families, and LLS staff, in interactive sessions to share learnings and best practices to enhance fundraising success.

On Advocacy Day, May 7, Leading the Charge for Cures and Access, volunteer advocates meet with members of Congress and their staff to engage them in LLS’s policy agenda.

Interested in participaiting but can't make the trip to Washington DC? We will have opportunities for your to steam the sessions live.  Information on how to follow along remotely will be published closer to the conference.
