HELP US MAKE HISTORY. AGAIN. BEAT AML - The goal: raise $300,000 by June 30 Nearly 15 years ago, Dr. Brian Druker and his research team – funded by The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) – made history. The therapy they developed tamed one of the most lethal blood cancers, chronic myeloid leukemia (CML), and saved the lives of thousands of patients who now manage their CML with just one pill a day.
