Upcoming Patient Education Programs Postponed

The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) is monitoring closely the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. As a health organization, one of our highest priorities is the well-being of the patients we serve, as well as our employees, volunteers, donors and partners. We are following vigilantly U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines to evaluate our plans, including upcoming events, in order to act in a timely and responsible way.


In an effort to prioritize the well-being of our patients, speakers, attendees, staff and volunteers, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society is postponing all community based education programs through May 15, 2020. We will notify you if a new date is scheduled.


We’re here to help. As the leading source of free blood cancer information, education and support for patients, survivors, caregivers, families and healthcare professionals, we are committed to patients and families throughout their entire cancer experience. Our Information Specialists – master’s level oncology professionals – are available to guide patients and caregivers with one-on-one support. Contact an LLS Information Specialist for at 1.800.955.4572, and by live chat or email via www.LLS.org.


We also encourage patients and families to read “4 Things Every Cancer Patient Needs to Know about the Coronavirus” by LLS Chief Medical Officer Dr. Gwen Nichols on The LLS Blog.
