Watch this short video to learn why LLS Community is the place for you.

LLS Community was created to honor the memory of Michael Garil, who was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia in 1974 at the age of seven. Throughout his life, Michael dedicated himself to openly sharing his experiences in the hopes of helping others. To continue what Michael started, his parents Ethel and Bernard Garil have generously supported the creation of LLS Community in his memory.
