Profile Information

  • Year established: 1949
  • History: The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) was born out of a family's grief following the death of their teenage son.
    Robert Roesler de Villiers (left), son of a well-to-do New York family, was only 16 when he quickly succumbed to leukemia in 1944. Five years later, frustrated by the lack of effective treatments for what was then considered a hopeless disease, parents Rudolph and Antoinette de Villiers started a fundraising and education organization in their son's name.
