Lymphoma Canada is the leading lymphoma charity in Canada, providing education, support, advocacy, and research to patients and the lymphoma community. For 25 years, we have empowered patients and their families to navigate their lymphoma journey.
Lymphoma is the fifth most commonly diagnosed cancer in Canada, affecting over 10,000 Canadians each year. With the right support and treatment, most people with lymphoma can live long and healthy lives. However, there is still a need for more research to improve early detection and develop more effective treatments.
This Giving Tuesday, we are inviting Canadians to join us in supporting lymphoma research. Your donation will help us fund well-defined research studies with the potential to make a positive impact on the lives of lymphoma patients.

At Lymphoma Canada, we offer a wide range of programs and services to support patients and their families at every stage of their lymphoma journey. Our goal is to provide patients and their families with the resources, knowledge, and emotional assistance they need to navigate the daunting journey of lymphoma with resilience and hope.

What Makes Us Different?
There are a few things that set Lymphoma Canada apart from other lymphoma charities.
First, we are a solely Canadian organization. Our resources are derived from Canadian statistics and feature only Canadian-specific information. All of our materials are reviewed and approved by our Scientific Advisory Board, which is comprised of Canadian researchers and clinicians. This ensures that the information we provide is relevant and accurate for Canadian patients.
Second, we are committed to funding Canadian research. We believe that the best way to improve the lives of lymphoma patients in Canada is to support research that is relevant to their needs. That’s why we only fund Canadian researchers, and we prioritize research that is focused on early detection, new and better treatments, and the causes of lymphoma.
Third, we offer a wide range of support services to patients and the lymphoma community. We know that lymphoma can be a challenging journey, and we want to be there for patients and their families every step of the way. That’s why we offer a variety of support services, including electronic and print materials on lymphoma, peer and caregiver support groups, educational forums, and advocacy on behalf of patients.
Lymphoma Canada has made a significant impact on the lives of lymphoma patients in Canada. We have funded research that has led to new and better treatments for lymphoma. We have also provided support and education to thousands of patients and their families.
Here are just a few examples of our impact:
- We have provided support and education to thousands of patients and their families. Our support groups and educational forums have helped patients and their families connect with others who are facing similar challenges and learn more about lymphoma.
- We have advocated on behalf of patients to ensure that they have access to the best possible care and support. This advocacy has led to increased government funding for lymphoma research and support programs.
We are excited about the future of Lymphoma Canada. We are committed to continuing to fund research, provide support and education, and advocate on behalf of patients. We believe that together, we can create a future where life is unlimited by lymphoma.
