Leukemia & Lymphoma Society

2019 Goals:

Raise $4,750,000 for research, patient access and advocacy to support the 46,000 patients that are either currently in treatment or in remission from a blood cancer. This includes continuing the $1.4 million investment in research at Dartmouth College, supporting New Hampshire patients with $160,000 in co-pay assistance, and providing educational and emotional support groups at Concord Hospital, Dartmouth-Hitchcock and Southern New Hampshire Medical Center.

Fundraising Events:

With five signature fundraising campaigns, our volunteers can run, hike, walk, sail, build teams and gain lifelong learning skills while raising funds to drive forward our mission to end blood cancers. Our campaigns include Team In Training, and our Student Series: Pennies 4 Patients, Man & Woman of the Year, Student of the Year, Leukemia Regatta Cup & Light The Night. Light The Night has been proud to be part of the New Hampshire community for 17 years. Every October at Greeley Park in Nashua we walk with our patients. Together we bring light to the darkness of cancer in a meaningful way. 

Giving Opportunities:

There are many different ways to support LLS: Individual Giving — supporting us by donating a typical gift via mail, online, in person or by phone. Events — participate in our events by creating a team with your company, family, friends or school. Major Gifts — donating a $10,000+ gift to support a passion of yours and our mission. Tributes & Memorials — a donation to thank caregivers, honor a survivor and remember a loved one. Employee Giving — make financial donations directly from your paycheck through your company’s giving program. Planned Gifts — a contribution that is arranged in the present and allocated at a future date, usually through a will or trust.

Volunteer Opportunities:

Our volunteers make a significant impact while selflessly dedicating their time and talent to achieve our mission. Our opportunities allow anyone to be a volunteer. With volunteers varying from day-of event, in-office help, direct patient support, and taking on leadership roles, there truly is home for any volunteer. With these countless ways to engage, our volunteers are helping us change the landscape of cancer. Together beating cancer is in our blood.
