The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) is the largest voluntary health organization dedicated to funding research, finding cures and ensuring access to treatments for blood cancer patients.
Since 1949 LLS has been on the forefront of blood cancer advances such as chemotherapies and stem cell transplantation leading the way to the targeted therapies and immunotherapies that are saving thousands of lives today.
LLS is changing the landscape of cancer with more than 300 active research projects that explore different avenues of new and adventurous research; ones with promise and ones that will save lives not someday, but today.
Whenever we talk about cancer, we always use the same word. Someday. Someday there will be a cure. Someday we won’t lose the people we love. But when is someday? With LLS’s research partnerships and collaborations with pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies, patients support services and advocates working for blood cancer patients everywhere, someday is today.
The Executive Director is the top management leader of the Western Central New York chapter and is responsible for providing overall leadership and management for fundraising strategies and operations designed to create cost effective and on-going sources of revenue growth, community outreach, volunteer expansion and engagement, and mission enhancement for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) within the chapter's market territory. In addition, the Executive Director is responsible for leading talent acquisition and development, developing and managing high performing and aligned matrix chapter teams, driving marketing and sales activation, managing the Chapter’s annual budget, and executing the operating plan; and in administering LLS policies and procedures necessary to the efficient functioning of the chapter.
