Organization Details:

The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society
Last updated on March 2, 2016


The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) is the world’s largest private organization concerned solely with funding research toward cures for blood cancers such as leukemia, lymphoma, and myeloma, and improving the quality of life of patients and their families. LLS was established in 1949 as the deVilliers Foundation, named in memory of Robert Roesler deVilliers who died of leukemia at the age of sixteen.
LLS is dedicated to being one of the top-rated voluntary health agencies in terms of dollars that directly fund the mission: 75% of the Society’s expenditures are directed to research, patient and community services, advocacy and education.

The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Light The Night Walk funds lifesaving research and support for people battling cancer. Friends, families and co-workers form fundraising teams and millions of consumers help by donating at retail outlets. These efforts culminate in inspirational, memorable evening walks in over two hundred communities each fall across North America. In October, the National Capital Area Chapter of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society hosts three Light The Night Walks in Reston, Rockville and Washington, DC.
