Patient Advisory Committee

The Patient Advisory Committee is made up of volunteers who have been diagnosed with leukemia or who have cared for a loved one with leukemia. Their purpose is to advise the Foundation on its patient and family support programs by giving feedback and sharing their needs as patients and caregivers. The Foundation uses their insights to improve or change its programs to best support patients and their loved ones.
