Advocacy

CLL Society was established on the four pillars of education, advocacy, support, and research to equitably meet the unmet needs of the CLL/SLL patient and caregiver community.

For us, advocacy has meant working publicly and behind the scenes to support policies and causes important to those whose lives are touched by chronic lymphocytic leukemia/small lymphocytic lymphoma.

Areas of our advocacy include, but are by no means limited to:

  • Equitable access to best care
  • Funding for CLL/SLL and related research
  • Recognition of the needs of the immunocompromised, including us
  • Education about what services are available
