Leukemia Research Foundation has been such a valuable resource for information and support. The mission of this organization is near and dear to my heart; finding a cure. The research that they support may one day bring an end to leukemia. So many strides have been made by this organization’s research and it gives us all the hope and strength to keep trying to do more. I hope I live to see the cure, because I know it is coming.

Since diagnosis, my husband has been through multiple treatments with various post-treatment complications. This financial assistance will allow us to pay a large portion of our medical bills and use our limited income for daily needs, like food and rent. What a relief it is to have assistance.
