In order to provide Canadians living with lymphoma and CLL with the most up-to-date information and resources related to COVID-19, we have created a COVID-19 Information Hub.

This Hub is designed with resources specifically for patients, caregivers and their families, as well as general information, and province-specific resources. Resources will be continually updated as new information becomes available.

As the situation progresses, we are connecting with our community of physicians, governments, and the pharmaceutical industry to get as much information as we can. We will continue to update you on any new information as it develops.

If you are a patient with lymphoma or CLL, please do not hesitate to reach out to us for support at info@lymphoma.ca
