OUR MISSION

The mission at The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of Canada (LLSC) is to: Cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin's disease and myeloma, and improve the quality of life of patients and their families. 

LLSC is extremely proud of the important work our staff and volunteers do to support thousands of patients and their families who are facing the diagnosis of a blood cancer, to help them survive and, hopefully, be cured.

The funds invested provide:

  • Life-saving blood cancer research to accelerate treatments, therapies and cures

  • Free educational materials and events for patients and their families

  • Local programs such as Family Support Groups and the First Connection Peer-to-Peer Support Program

  • Comprehensive, personalized assistance through our Information Resource Center (IRC)

  • Educational information sessions for healthcare professionals and non-patient group

Facts

  • There are currently an estimated 138,000 Canadians living with or in remission from a blood cancer.

  • Each year, approximately 22,300 Canadians of all ages are diagnosed with a form of blood cancer.

  • Every 23 minutes someone is diagnosed with a blood cancer in Canada, accounting for 11% of estimated new cancer cases in Canada.
