Leukemia Research Foundation News

Our Vision on Display

The Leukemia Research Foundation is proud to share that its work and Vision are currently featured on the prominent Wintrust Mural building in Chicago through February 20.

Located at Exit 48B (North Avenue) on the west side of the Kennedy Expressway (I-90/I-94) the three-sided mural is visible to nearly 300,000 vehicles per day traveling along one of the country’s busiest freeways.

This exceptional exposure is made possible by Wintrust, a family of local run community banks that proudly calls Chicago home. The Foundation enjoys a longstanding relationship with Wintrust and includes employee volunteerism, sponsorship support, and client association. The Wintrust mural building uses art to raise awareness for Chicagoland’s impact-driven non-profits that are committed to making a lasting difference.

The Foundation’s mural artwork, created by Concentric Design, offers an opportunity to increase public awareness and mobilize the community to share our Vision of a World Without Leukemia. Leukemia can touch anyone at any time, regardless of race, gender, age, or ethnicity. The artwork illustrates a connection – between patients, doctors, caregivers, researchers, and supporters – who come together to overcome the complex disease with dozens of subtypes.

One of the lessons we all learned through the pandemic is the importance of funding medical research. Scientists have made remarkable progress in understanding leukemia in pursuit of a cure. Increased awareness and support will enhance critical health and health care initiatives that will help fund tomorrow’s cures.
