The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society of Newfoundland and Labrador (LLSNL) is always looking to make a difference in the lives of those affected by these forms of cancers.
The organization, which just recently completed its second Light The Night event at Bowring Park, raised more than $161,000 to be used for a variety of initiatives with patients and their families across the province. They provided the hematology doctors, nurses and staff with a small token of appreciation last week by showing up with hot beverages and muffins for all to enjoy.
In addition, LLSNL donated a cordless phone for patients on Four North A to use while they are being treated in hospital when they want to contact family members, or vice versa.
The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society is at the forefront of the fight to cure cancer. It is the largest non-profit dedicated to creating a world without blood cancers. Since 1949, more than $1.2 billion has been invested in ground-breaking research, pioneering many of today’s most innovative approaches.
