CLL Global Research Foundation began as a concept from patients with chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL). The idea was to provide a spotlight on CLL and to accelerate CLL research. Therefore, CLL Global is committed to accelerating progress towards the control of CLL and ultimately finding a cure for the disease as quickly as possible. To accomplish this, we promote a novel structure for research. We preferentially fund projects that translate into rapid clinical applications. We pride ourselves in complementing, rather than replacing, other funding mechanisms by accelerating new ideas, which allows researchers the opportunity for increased funding from other resources.
The CLL Society Inc. is a patient-centric, physician-curated nonprofit organization focused on patient education, support and research. Dedicated to addressing the unmet needs of the CLL and related blood cancer communities, we explain the rapidly changing therapeutic landscape and the importance of clinical trials, support and build patient networks, engage in research and educate providers and patients.
CLL Support is a patient-led UK charity. We are the patient support arm of the UK CLL Forum comprised of CLL researchers, scientists and haematologists from across the UK. Our mission is to support and empower Chronic Lymphocytic Leukaemia (CLL) and Small Lymphocytic Leukaemia (SLL) patients, their families and supporters through education and access to reliable, relevant and current information. We also represent CLL patients in discussions with government, pharmaceutical companies, other leukaemia charities and the National Institute for Care and Health Excellence (NICE).
