Children's Leukemia Research Association
585 Stewart Avenue, Suite 18
Garden City, NY 11530
The Children's Leukemia Research Association (CLRA), also known as the National Leukemia Research Association, was founded in 1965 as a non-profit organization to raise funds for research into the causes of, and possible cures for, leukemia, and to provide assistance to families in need as a result of the expenses incurred during leukemia treatment. Leukemia is any of several types of cancer in which there is usually an abnormal accumulation of white blood cells within the bone marrow, often resulting in decreased production of red blood cells, platelets, and normal white blood cells. Organs such as the liver, lymph nodes, and brain may fail to function properly as they are infiltrated by leukemia cells. The two key functions of the CLRA are its Research Grant Program and its Patient Aid Program.
