CHARLESTON, S.C. – Refuel Market has announced The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) as their official charity partner. All Refuel and Double-Quick locations across the US will be participating twice yearly in a 6 Week Point of Sale Campaign at their registers benefiting LLS.
“We are so grateful for our partnership with Refuel,” said Nichole Guzman Vice President, Business Development & Partnerships at LLS. “Every 180 seconds, someone is diagnosed with a blood cancer across the U.S., and finding cures take us all. Together, we’re creating a world without blood cancer.”
Through partnerships with companies like Refuel, LLS has invested more than $1.5 billion since its inception in research to advance breakthrough therapies. The funds raised through Refuel’s campaign are used for:
- Research to advance lifesaving therapies like immunotherapy, genomics and personalized medicine, which are saving lives today.
- Free blood cancer information, education and support for patients and families.
- National and local advocacy efforts driving policies that safely accelerate new treatments and ensure patients have access to care so that they can live longer, healthier lives.
Despite the progress, more than a third of blood cancer patients still do not survive five years after their diagnosis.
