Our Pennies for Patients campaign for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society has begun! Your child recently brought home a letter and a collection box. Please begin filling your box with pennies and other spare change!

Pennies for Patients makes an even bigger difference than you may think. If you don’t know someone with a blood cancer, you probably know someone who has battled another form of cancer. More than 40% of new cancer therapies approved by the FDA between 2000 and 2015 were first approved for blood cancer patients but now help others as well.

Working together on our Pennies for Patients campaign, we can turn our spare change into real help for real people!
