Fundraising for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of Canada
In 1985, our UFCW Canada family of members and Local Unions made a pledge to work together to support the efforts of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of Canada (LLSC).
Since then, your tremendous fundraising has raised more than $47.2 million for the LLSC. Combining all efforts across Canada, UFCW Canada members and Local Unions are a tower of hope and financial support for the work of the LLSC to find a cure, provide better therapies and patient support, and raise public awareness that blood cancer is a battle that can be won.
Advancing together, our LLSC fundraising has made a vital difference. Today, many kids and adults with leukemia and other blood cancers are living longer or are in remission because of new therapies that have led to higher survival rates and a better quality of life.
