About the Children's Leukemia Research Association

CLRA has been helping Americans for over 50 years.

Fifty years ago a child diagnosed with leukemia lived at best 6 months. Research has brought advancements in chemotherapy, drugs and transplants. Today children are living 5 years, 10 years and in some cases are in permanent remission. Progress has been made—but we are not there yet.

CLRA has been helping Americans for over 50 years. The Children’s Leukemia Research Association, Inc., formerly known as the National Leukemia Research Association, was founded in 1965 to support research efforts towards finding the causes and cure for Leukemia.

The CLRA is a not-for-profit 501(c)3 organization governed by a volunteer Board of Directors.

All our work is funded by voluntary donations from generous and caring Americans who are joining us to bring an end to this insidious disease. You can help us reach our goal. Please support the Children’s Leukemia Research Association.
