A financial professional with Merrill Lynch, Keefe Gorman also contributes time and energy to various community organizations. One research and patient support organization to which Keefe Gorman donates is the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS).
While leukemia and lymphoma are both blood cancers, the former disease affects cells in bone marrow, while the latter is found in the lymphatic system. LLS sponsors in-person and online resources for mutual support. No fees are charged for these gatherings.
Persons who appreciate “live” small group settings may be interested in the organization's family support groups, where meetings allow patients and families to share feelings and get information. Experts trained in oncology facilitate the groups, which usually meet monthly. Currently some 230 groups exist, with numbers rising steadily.
Those desiring a more private setting can take part in the Patti Robinson Kaufmann First Connection Program. In this program, newer patients pair up with peers experienced in living through blood cancer. Peers receive training in counseling and access to educational materials. When possible, participants and peers are matched by gender, diagnosis, and age.
Finally, electronic discussion boards mediate conversation about various blood cancers and other topics of interest. Caregivers, young persons, and those experiencing blood cancers can also sign onto weekly online chats.
