The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society Exceeds $1 Billion Research Investment

The CEO of Mindscope Cura Staffing Software, Daniel Duic, has more than 25 years of experience in the software development industry. Daniel Duic gives back to his community through charitable contributions to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS), a nonprofit health agency committed to blood cancer research and support services.

At LLS’s recent, 3-day conference in Washington, D.C, the organization announced that it surpassed $1 billion in blood cancer research investment. The organization recognized this significant landmark in its history amidst a conference at which leading researchers presented new insights into promising therapies. Discussion panels featured patient testimonials and reviews of patient access to new treatments. One focus of the conference was to encourage more than 500 LLS advocates to meet with and petition government officials in an effort to encourage support of legislation that improves treatment affordability.

Reflecting on the work still to be performed, the LLS interim president, CEO, and chief mission officer emphasized the importance of LLS’ endeavors: “While the one billion dollar research investment is helping to save lives today and extending survival rates for many patients, there are still few, if any, means for preventing or early screening for most blood cancers. More than one third of blood cancer patients do not survive more than five years after diagnosis.”
