New Tripoli, PA US 18066
Saturday, May 12, 2018

All around us we have seen friends, family members & colleagues battle various cancers. “Constructing A Cure” is a team of volunteers that have come together to raise funds for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) of Eastern PA through Ron Jerdon’s LLS Man/Woman of the Year Campaign. 

LLS exists to find cures and ensure access to treatments for blood cancer patients. They are the voice for all blood cancer patients and work to ensure access to treatments for all blood cancer patients. LLS identifies and funds the most promising blood cancer research projects and forges partnerships with academic institutions, biotechnology and pharmaceutical companies to accelerate the development of new therapies. LLS is the leading source of free, highly specialized blood cancer information, education and support for patients, survivors, families and healthcare professionals. They advocate for blood cancer survivors and their families, helping patients navigate their cancer treatments and ensuring they have access to quality, affordable and coordinated care.
