Sylvan Learning and The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society

Sylvan Learning is proud to be a Special Friend of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) Light The Night Walk and have the opportunity to play a meaningful role in the lives of LLS pediatric patients by providing much-needed tutoring services.

While most recognize how illnesses like leukemia or lymphoma impact a patient’s life, few realize the effect they have on a pediatric patient’s educational future. Children diagnosed with leukemia or lymphoma often miss countless days of class due to treatment schedules. Upon remission, it can be very challenging to return to school due to the amount of class work that has been missed.


Sylvan hopes to ease that transition back to school by offering personal tutoring programs customized to these pediatric patients’ specific academic needs, either during or post-treatment.

Since 2013, Sylvan has raised over $200,000 for LLS through fundraising initiatives and participation in Light The Night walks held across North America. We have also donated more than $125,000 of free tutoring services to LLS pediatric patients in more than 250 communities nationwide. These patients received a full tutoring scholarship which includes a detailed academic assessment, a tutoring plan that was personalized to his or her exact needs, and 24/7 access to additional educational resources online.
