This weekend the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society is presenting the 2016 Blood Cancer Conference at the Cobb Galleria Centre. Since 1946, LLS has been establishing a community of patients, caregivers, and researchers to spread wisdom and bring about change. As the world’s largest voluntary health agency dedicated to blood cancer, the organization prides itself on being a leader in providing information, education, and support.

Craig Sager, Turner Sports’ Sideline Reporter who was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia in 2014, will be this year’s keynote speaker. Sager is receiving the Jimmy V Award for Perseverance at this year’s ESPYS, and will share his journey at Saturday’s conference.

The 2016 Blood Cancer Conference is an excellent way for people whose lives have been touched by blood cancer to learn about the latest research and treatments. Donations are always welcome from community members.
