The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of Canada‘s (LLSC) Man & Woman of the Year campaign is a philanthropic competition for leaders in local communities across the US, and in 2020 we are bringing the campaign to Montreal, Quebec, and Halifax, Nova Scotia! Candidates and their teammates raise funds for LLSC in honour of local blood cancer survivors. The title "Man or Woman of the Year" is awarded to the candidate whose team raises the most funds during the competition. The top man & woman candidate in the country are awarded with the national title.
For continuing research of lifesaving therapies like targeted therapies and immunotherapies that are saving thousands of lives.
For blood cancer information, education and support.
To support patients and their families in communities across Canada.
The Boy & Girl of the Year are local blood cancer survivors who provide inspiration and motivation to candidates during their campaign, as well as support for their appeals. The candidates compete in honor of them.
