September is Blood Cancer Awareness Month.

Approximately every three minutes, one person in the United States is diagnosed with a blood cancer. An estimated 1,237,824 people in the U.S. are either living with or are in remission from leukemia, lymphoma or myeloma.

The mission of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) is to cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and myeloma, and improve the quality of life of patients and their families. Click here to learn more and find support.

Help fight leukemia by sponsoring Doug Dunbar in his quest to conquer the Ironman World Championship in Kona, Hawaii, all to raise money to find a cure for blood cancers.
