A cancer diagnosis is scary and overwhelming. Having cancer amidst the coronavirus pandemic is even tougher and cancer patients need us now more than ever. LLS is laser-focused on helping blood cancer patients, their families, and healthcare providers during the pandemic, and continues to drive breakthrough research to accelerate better treatments and cures and ensuring patients have access to the care, support and resources they need:

· The LLS COVID-19 Patient Financial Aid Program is provided a $250 stipend to blood cancer patients for non-medical expenses and disbursed more than $4 million to more than 16,000 patients.

· Many game-changing treatment approaches first discovered in blood cancer research with LLS support are approved or being tested in clinical trials for other cancers and diseases, including the COVID-19 virus

· LLS is urging lawmakers to adopt critical reforms to support patients during this time of urgent need
