In Canada, there are an estimated 138,000 people affected by blood cancers. Every 23 minutes someone is diagnosed with a blood cancer. And every 72 minutes someone will die from a blood cancer. In 1964 the five-year survival rate for children with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) was 3%. Today it’s approximately 91%. This is all possible through life-saving research.

Make this year count, embark on your own adventure while giving hope to families touched by blood cancer and helping the LLSC fund life-saving cancer research and providing patient support resources.
