Lauren McAninch, Myia Holden and Anna Yorio are participating in the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s Students of the Year fundraising campaign which runs until March 2, 2019. Anna’s brother suffered from Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia as a young child. He has made an astounding recovery and is now living and health, successful life. His family continues to be involved with LLS due to the support they provided the family during his battle. In addition to funding research to cure blood and other cancers, LLS provides financial and caregiver support locally for those affected by blood cancers. Since 2000, approximately 40% of all US Food & Drug Administration approved cancer drugs were for a blood cancer, and some are now used to treat other forms of cancer and non-malignant diseases. As the leading source of free blood cancer information, education and support for patients, survivors, families and healthcare professionals, LLS helps patients navigate their cancer treatment and ensures they have access to quality, affordable and coordinated care. Research will help us achieve an end to cancer. In the meantime, patients need help before, during and after their diagnosis and treatment. LLS is the leading nonprofit that does just that.
