The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS) has built a nationwide grassroots network of volunteer advocates to empower blood cancer patients to affect real change. LLS works with Congress and the FDA to promote new medical discoveries and speed the development of new treatments and cures. LLS has made a difference in the lives of blood cancer patients by helping pass oral parity laws in more than a dozen states to ensure equity on cost-sharing for patients who rely on self-administered treatments.

Guest speaker is Emma Thornton, Campaign Manager. She will be accompanied by Frank Wadel, a Lymphoma survivor, who will also address the audience. Reservations are required and seating is limited. For more information and reservations call 727-869-5498 or toll free at 1-888-741-5119.
