The Meredith A. Cowden Foundation
We also help provide aid for the special needs of patients and families battling a blood cancer. We contribute to The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) Patient Services program, which helps with funding for non-medical expenses associated with the treatment of the blood cancers.
Unfortunately, too many of us have been touched by a blood cancer through family, friends, colleagues and/or acquaintances who have faced the disease. The Foundation works every day to support and encourage those who continue to fight this battle, to honor the champions who have battled this disease and the memory of those who are no longer with us.
With the help of many, we will continue to work on elevating the awareness of, and funding research for, the treatment of all blood cancers.
The happiest people are not those getting more,
but those giving more
