The Leukemia Research Foundation (LRF) was founded in 1946
and is dedicated to conquering all blood cancers by funding
research into their causes and cures, and enriching the quality of
life of those touched by these diseases.
For more than 67 years, thousands of volunteers have helped the Foundation raise
more than $56 million in support of this mission. Major LRF programs include:
Worldwide medical research - each year, it is the Foundation’s goal to grant in excess of $1
million to medical research.
Patient financial assistance - the financial assistance and support programs of the LRF are
available to patients and families who reside primarily within a 100-mile radius of Chicago and
the state of Illinois. On average, we provide over $200,000 per year in financial assistance.
Educational support services - for patients, family members, caregivers and medical
professionals. These conferences, including the Treatment Options for Blood Cancer Patients
Conference, the Town Hall Meeting, and Town Hall Meeting in Spanish, are offered free of
charge. They provide opportunities for direct dialogue between patients and prominent
hematology/oncology and transplant specialists to discuss treatment options and procedures.
Leukemia is the #1 cause of death by disease in children, and, although commonly
thought of as a childhood disease, is diagnosed ten times more often in adults.
