Leukemia Research Foundation Board of Directors

The Leukemia Research Foundation’s leadership is made up of people who have coped with, firsthand, the death of a loved one, or have personally survived a blood cancer diagnosis themselves. As a result, decisions regarding LRF programs and services are based upon personal experience as well as true compassion with the hope that in the future no one will experience what they, themselves have endured.
