Leukemias are among the most aggressive and lethal forms of blood cancer. Despite dramatic advances in understanding cancer biology, there is still much work left to be done for people affected by these diseases.

The Campaign 2 Save Lives is a $5 million initiative to establish the Leukemia Translational Research Program at the Robert H. Lurie Comprehensive Cancer Center of Northwestern University.

Read about our Mission »   Leadership »

The Leukemia Translational Research Program (LTRP) will expand on the past successes of Northwestern’s Leukemia Program and provide an infrastructure to fast-track discovery, and improve patient outcomes and care by opening doors to targeted and more effective treatment options. The LTRP will offer hope to people living with acute and chronic leukemias, myelodysplastic syndrome, and other chronic myeloid neoplasms. The program will also broaden global awareness, promote the importance of stem cell cord blood donations and transplants, and expand personalized care and treatment options for patients with these life-threatening cancers.

“As founders of this campaign, we are openly demonstrating our commitment, passion, and belief in the outstanding doctors and scientists who will lead the Leukemia Translational Research Program at the Lurie Cancer Center,” said Campaign 2 Save Lives Co-Chairs, Barbara and Bruce Jacobson.

Drs. Altman, Frankfurt, and Platanias are global leaders in leukemia research, committed to realizing the Leukemia Translational Research Program’s vision to save lives. They seek to bridge the gap between laboratory research and patient care to improve outcomes.

We invite you to join the Campaign 2 Save Lives in advancing the expansion of leukemia research, treatment, and education at Northwestern Medicine. Your philanthropic support will create a lasting legacy and improve the health, education, and well-being of our global community for generations to come.
