On October 23rd, 2023, hundreds of members of our blood cancer community gathered to celebrate the launch of HealthTree 2.0. The energy was palpable and the overall feeling of the night was one of hope for the future. The Launch marked HealthTree’s laser focus on driving research to cure blood cancers, highlighting its expansion from myeloma to now over 40 additional blood cancers including CLL.
