We’re known to get a little creative in finding reasons to celebrate.

Beyond the workplace, we strive to have a positive impact in the places we live and the communities we serve. We inspire and challenge our employees to do good.

Among the groups we have chosen to support are those that address needs of patients in our therapeutic areas as well as organizations that address broader social determinants of health (food, clothing) and disaster relief.

One thing that stands out is the commitment of everyone in the company to the patients and their families living with cutaneous lymphoma. Over the years, we have worked collaboratively on many projects, incorporating the patient perspective along the way. While the therapy is critical for our patient community, it’s the commitment to the people that makes all the difference.”

It’s overwhelming to see the love and resilience of the dreamer and their family, and to play a part in giving them an experience they cherish.”
