Nix Students raising money for blood cancer treatments

Posted by H. Thomas (Treasurer) on 3/17/2016 to News

Roscoe Nix students are raising money to support the The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Please feel free to pass this onto friends, relatives… anyone that would like to donate to this worthy cause!

Please join us in supporting The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) Student Series campaign. Your support will help fund the therapies and treatments that help save the lives of blood cancer patients today.

For over 65 years LLS has invested more than $1 billion to advance cancer therapies and save lives.

Last year alone, LLS invested nearly $79.8 million in cutting-edge research. And many LLS-supported therapies not only help blood cancer patients, but are now used to treat patients with other forms of cancers as well.  Nearly 40% of new cancer therapies approved by the FDA between 2000 and 2014 were first approved for blood cancer patients.
