The T-Cell Leukemia Lymphoma Foundation is a non-profit organization that was formed in an effort to fulfill several purposes. The first is to provide education about these rare cancers to patients and family members by means of hosting educational forums and dispensing literature. When diagnosed, cancer isn’t the only thing these patients have to battle; simple issues such as travel to and from appointments can be costly, so our second goal is to dispense charitable funds to to assist with treatment-related expenses. Last but not least, extensive research is still needed to learn and understand more about TCLL. Therefore, allocating charitable funds to support such scientific research is imperative in our mission.
