We need your help. There is nothing in the world more gratifying than the smile of a healthy child. Sadly, there is nothing more devastating to a parent than the illness or loss of that child. This is why PAL (Parents Against Leukemia) was founded in 1974 by parents whose children were stricken with leukemia. Our all-volunteer organization is committed to raising funds for research aimed at eradicating blood cancers that primarily afflict children.


    • PAL has donated more than $1,000,000 to research through membership drives and special events, including one of the largest private tennis tournaments in Southern California. One hundred percent of all funds collected support specific research efforts at the UCLA Medical Center.


    • This type of success validates our efforts.


    • PAL is an IRS registered 501c3 organization and all your contributions are tax-deductible.


  • You can make a difference!
