New Patient Advisory Committee

The Leukemia Research Foundation is proud to announce that it has formed a new Patient Advisory Committee!

The committee is made up of 14 volunteers who have been diagnosed with blood cancer or who have cared for a loved one with blood cancer. 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. Their insights will be used by the Foundation to improve or change its programs to best serve and support patients and their loved ones.

Committee members reside all over the United States, representing a variety of diagnoses, genders, ages, stages of treatment, and more. The first meeting will be held virtually in November.
