The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and Houston Minority Health Coalitions to host Blood Cancer Awareness Program

Tremendous advances have been made to treat blood cancer but the battle is far from won

Houston, Texas - The Texas Gulf Coast Chapter of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society is partnering with the African American Health Coalition, Asian Health Coalition, Hispanic Health Coalition, and the Native American Health Coalition to discuss and address health disparities concerning Clinical Trials, Bone Marrow Transplant, and Survivorship among communities of color diagnosed with a blood cancer. The local chapter is launching its year-long educational campaign aimed at helping increase blood cancer awareness in underserved communities of Houston, Texas.

“There are many people of color in the U.S. who are battling a blood cancer, who need community support and compassion,” said Dr. Jatin Shah, Assistant Professor Medicine, Department of Lymphoma/Myeloma from The University of Texas M. D. Anderson Cancer Center. “It is important to realize that there is an increase of blood cancers within the communities and that it affects everyone including children,” “We need to work together to educate our communities about participating in clinical trials, becoming a bone marrow donor, and providing physical, financial and emotional resources.”

The program will be held on Wednesday, June 10, 2009, at 11:30 a.m. at the Texas Medical Center Library, 1133 John Freeman Blvd., Houston, TX 77030

The goal of the workshop is to bring together healthcare professionals, patients, and members of the community to discuss the unmet needs, foster collaborative interactions and to stimulate the development of new partnerships for the educational campaign aimed at helping increase blood cancer awareness.

Remarkable progress has been made in treating patients with blood cancers.

Yet, more than 894,000 people in the United States currently have some form of blood cancer. Every ten minutes someone dies from a blood cancer and an estimated 52,910 will die from one this year.

“This awareness workshop is an opportunity to increase the public’s understanding of blood cancers and encourage people to support the funding of research to find better treatment and to help patients have the best possible outcomes throughout their cancer experience,” said Billie Sue Parris, Executive Director.
