Mission: The mission of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) is: Cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin's disease and myeloma, and improve the quality of life of patients and their families.
LLS exists to find cures and ensure access ...
The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) has plenty of fun and creative ways for you to get involved in a charitable fundraising event. Whether you're looking for a physical challenge or an evening out with friends, we offer something for everyone. Whatever your interest, there's a way to get involved, have fun and accelerate cures.
"LLS is doing more than any cancer nonprofit to advance cutting-edge research and cures."
– Louis J. DeGennaro, Ph.D., LLS President and CEO
LLS research investment has played a critical role in advancing therapies for blood cancer patients, including targeted and immunotherapies.
As there are no means of preventing or early screening for most blood cancers, the LLS research agenda is focused on finding cures. LLS drives research in areas of unmet medical need and helps to bridge the gap between academic discovery and drug development.
We fund research grants to support every discipline in the blood cancers, and we partner directly with biotechnology companies to accelerate therapies.
It is an absolute pleasure to come to work every day. I fully believe that this organization will fund the cure for cancer. We are not just curing blood cancers, but all cancers.
I have the most dedicated colleagues that I have ever had the pleasure to work with from the National Office to Chapter Staff.
We are forward thinking and nimble enough to make sure we are serving patients, funding research and raising money to support co-pay assistance, travel assistance and community based programing.
Every day I know the hard work we put in helps to save someone's life or make their life better.
We have a healthy balance of non-profit and for-profit experience through out the organization.
LLS puts resources into staff training, retention and benefits... truly making sure we hire and retain the best employees.
We haven't cured cancer yet!
Advice to Management
Thank you for making LLS a great place to work.
I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (San Francisco, CA).
Brief. Quick resume overview and job description. Nice interviewers and a very relaxed interview in general. No tests: IQ test, drug test; only background test required. Do bring your charm and your A game though.
