The WES Leukemia Research Foundation is a Gwinnett County birthed non-profit that is seeking the day “When Everyone Survives” by investing in new, innovative and potentially curative leukemia research. They work very hard to keep overhead extremely low so that all funds raised go directly to research. Each spring they have a Medical Advisory Board that reviews the grants submitted to WES from researchers all around the world and they determine the top grant recipients who will receive $50,000 towards their research on July 1st. Even though a cure has not been found yet, WES Leukemia Research Foundation funded research has been extremely successful in development and many new treatment options have been discovered that provide a better quality of life for those going through a battle with leukemia.
