LLS Community is a project of the Michael J. Garil Data Collective

Our community is an online gathering place for patients, caregivers and healthcare professionals to share experiences and provide support.  In addition, LLS provides information and resources to support patients and caregivers from diagnosis and throughout the cancer journey.

On the community you can:

  • Join disease, treatment and other groups to connect with others who have been through similar experiences
  • Learn about the latest treatments, education programs and support services available for individuals with blood cancers
  • Actively engage in conversations with others who can provide hope, understanding and tips for managing the blood cancer journey
  • Answer weekly Questions of the Day to help LLS provide the information and support most important to you
LLS Community was created to honor the memory of Michael Garil, who was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia in 1974 at the age of seven. Throughout his life, Michael dedicated himself to openly sharing his experiences in the hopes of helping others. To continue what Michael started, his parents Ethel and Bernard Garil have generously supported the creation of LLS Community in his memory.
