Thank you for your interest in becoming a volunteer with The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's (LLS) Patti Robinson Kauffman First Connection Program. Our First Connection Program is designed to provide support to patients and their family members. LLS's trained volunteers, who have effectively coped with their own cancer in the past, will be available to talk with patients and their families. The goal of the program is to provide hope and connect new patients to needed resources. To become a volunteer, you must be a survivor or caregiver (spouse, parent or child) at least one year out from treatment.
