The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society

Dear Dr. Ignatius & Jennifer,

Thank you for your thoughtful donation to The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society in support of Team in Training (TNT) fundraising efforts. Thousands of TNT participants have joined The Leukemia & Lymphomea Society and its mission to cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and mycloma, and to improve the quality of life for patients and their families.

Gleevec, recently approved by the FDA for patients with chromic myelogenous leukemia (CML), now shows promise for treating other cancers. Through gifts like yours, the Society was able to fund the pioneering research and development of this life-saving drug.

Your ongoing support of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society is crucial to our success. In addition to funding research programs, we offer support groups, financial aid, information and education, as well as advocacy programs that currently serve over 24,000 patients and their families throughout the Northern California Division. You can help us by:
· Participating in Team in Training or other Society special events for yourself.
· Encouraging blood cancer patients and their families to contact us.
· Continuing to donate to us on a regular basis, at whatever level you feel comfortable.
· Becoming a Society volunteer at an event, in our office or on a committee.
· Donating blood and signing up for the national bone marrow registry (a simple blood sample is all it takes).

Please call us at the Greater San Francisco Bay Area Chapter at 415-625-1100 or at the Silicon Valley & Monterey Bay Area Chapter at 408-271-2873 for more information, or visit Thank you again for your support of the Society and its mission.
