Leukemia & Lymphoma Society

2020 Goals:

Raise $7,000,000 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 $363,690 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 seven signature fundraising events, 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 local New Hampshire events include Team In Training, Student Series, Student of the Year and Light The Night.

Light The Night has been proud to be a part of the New Hampshire community for 20 years, hosting a walk in the fall with patients and their families. Together we bring light to the darkness of cancer in a meaningful way.
