This year we're excited to share that Lia Goh is serving as The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of Canada’s Light The Night Campaign co-chair in Toronto. Not only is this a tremendous honour and responsibility but Lia is the first 15-year-old in LLSC’s 67-year history to take this role.

 

While this is a great honour for Lia, she does not take this responsibility lightly. And we hope you will support her in this campaign to raise lifesaving funds for families and patients like her.

 

This year in honour of Lia’s 10- year anniversary we have committed to raising $100,000 in support of LLSC’s mission. This year LLSC has funded the highest number of research grants in its 67-year history, funding over $4M. I am pleased to share that $1M of these funds are directed towards pediatric blood cancer research. With your support, LLSC’s goal is to fund $5M worth of research next year. Why does this matter? In our lifetime we are making life altering progress in treatment and cures. To give you an example, in the last 50 year’s survival for the most common childhood cancer, Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia has come from 20% survival to over 90% survival. 

 

 

If we have come this far in the last 50 years then in our lifetime we believe we can cure childhood blood cancers.

Goal

Team Lia is participating in Light The Night Toronto on October 22 to fight blood cancers.

We’re proud to support the blood cancer community through Light The Night.

Blood cancers are the fifth most common form of cancer in Canada, affecting more than 155,000 Canadians—our family members, our friends and neighbours, our colleagues, ourselves. But together, we can shine a light toward a future without blood cancers.
