How your support helps

Posted by in Team in Training

LLS does some amazing work, and every dollar counts. Your contributions help patients and their families receive needed support and treatments, and they help fund research into new treatments as we push toward finding a cure. Here is how your support is helping:

  • $5,000 provides one patient with financial support for the cost of insurance co-payments and/or insurance premium costs for prescription drugs.
  • $1000 supports one week of basic blood cancer research at a facility like UCSF, Stanford, or UC Berkeley.
  • $450 provides general financial assistance to 3 blood cancer patients with significant financial need.
  • $200 funds one Family Support Group meeting of 9-15 participants; the SF Bay Area chapter has 9 monthly support group meetings.
  • $150 allows 5 patients to make a First Connection with a trained peer volunteer.
  • $120 provides 3 patients access to an information teleconference.
  • $52 is the average cost of tissue typing to become a bone marrow donor.
  • $25 covers a needed prescription co-payment.

All of my supporters rock!
