How This Pizza Company Fundraises for Lymphoma
Started in 1944, the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS) is the largest voluntary health organization dedicated to funding research, finding cures, and supporting access to treatment for patients with blood cancers. Creating LLS was initially prompted by the death of a 16-year-old boy in 1944 and the grief that his family felt. The boy’s parents developed an organization in their son’s name that focused on fundraising and education.
At the time, there were no effective treatments for blood cancers, and this family wanted to help prevent other families from going through what they did. The mission of LLS is to “Cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin's disease, and myeloma, and improve the quality of life of patients and their families.” In 2017, the organization invested over 40.7 million dollars into funding research. The organization currently has more than 300 research projects and PizzaRev is doing their part to help LLS accomplish their goals.
