Why Give to LLS?

With just a week until race day, I am still about $800 shy of my fundraising goal. If you're able, I would be so grateful if you were able to help me get there!

"Why Give to LLS?" 

Among the answers to this question is the following: Develop "targeted therapies" that kill cancer cells selectively. - By hitting specific molecular targets, these treatments don't harm patients' healthy cells, resulting in fewer dangerous side effects. 
The video below celebrates the lead researcher, Dr. Carl June, who made miraculous advancements by doing the unthinkable and creating the targeted therapy of our time. All this was made possible with help from the grant money funded by LLS. Those grants were made possible with help of individuals that made the financial contributions needed to fund this cutting edge research.

This was made possible by past TNT participants, and by donors like you. Just imagine what miracles will come in the future from money you contribute today!
