Leukemia and lymphoma are blood cancers that affect 139,000 new patients every year. In fact, there are approximately 912,000 Americans currently living with some form of these cancers. It is now the most prevalent fatal disease in children under age 15. The leading organization combating blood cancers is the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS).
