The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of Canada's mission is to cure leukemia, lymphoma (Hodgkin and non-Hodgkin) and myeloma and to improve the quality of life of patients and their families.
About The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of Canada / Société de leucémie & lymphome du Canada
The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of Canada was established in 1955 to fund Canadian researchers who focus on leukemia, lymphoma, myeloma, and Hodgkin's disease. Over the years we have funded hundreds of prominent researchers who have made significant progress in developing better, less invasive treatments in their quest to find permanent cures. Research has dramatically increased the survival rates of people stricken with blood-related cancers. Yet leukemia remains the number one disease-killer of children under 19 and alarmingly the incidence of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma in adults has doubled since 1973. Our mission to find better treatments and ultimately cures, continues.
