The mission of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (to identify treatments and cures for blood cancers) has been and remains particularly important and personal to our membership as several of our members have been stricken with blood cancers, two of whom have tragically passed away from their cancer as have a child of two of our members.
During the past seven years, the Club has donated in excess of $52,000 to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, earning it specific recognition as one of the top "corporate" donors for the past two years. Our Cumulative 2020 donations will top $12,100, exceeding our former best year's efforts by a third..
