The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society of Canada


We won’t stop until there is a cure for leukemia, lymphoma, myeloma, myelodysplastic syndromes and myeloproliferative neoplasms and are able to improve the quality of life of people affected by blood cancers and their families by funding life-enhancing research and providing educational resources, services and support.

In Canada, there are currently 155,593 people living with or in remission from one of the 137 types of blood cancers. Our story may have started out of a concern for leukemia research, but today, we are the largest registered charitable health agency dedicated to supporting the blood cancer community in Canada. Our focus has grown and now includes:
Funding research from bench to bedside
Rethinking how a person navigates their blood cancer experience
Providing targeted blood cancer information
Offering tools for psychological and emotional support
Empowering Canadians to take charge of their blood cancer experience through practical         support and advocacy

Who we serve
Our staff and volunteers are spread across the country to ensure our programs and services reach individuals and families in urban cities and rural communities alike. Many of our programs have been adapted for remote access so that distance is never an issue for critical resources or our support services. Our services and programs are specially developed and customized for the following groups:
Individuals with a blood cancer diagnosis including children, teens, young and older adults
Caregivers of a person with a blood cancer
Survivors of a blood cancer
Families and friends grieving the loss of a loved one to a blood cancer
