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 approximately $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
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.
