The 2020 Man and Woman of The Year campaign has been postponed.

The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of Canada is closely monitoring the developments on the COVID-19 pandemic and how it might impact Canadians affected by blood cancers. The safety of our community remains our top priority.

For more information, our public statement on COVID-19 is live in English and French and will be updated as needed.

Our community support teams remain available to take your calls at 1-833-222-4884.

We are here for you.

Man & Woman of the Year is a philanthropic competition to support blood cancer research among a group of motivated and dedicated individuals in communities across the United States and Canada. Candidates form powerful fundraising teams and compete in honour of local children who are blood cancer survivors.

The man and woman who have raised the most funds during the ten-week campaign are awarded the prestigious title of Man or Woman of the Year in their community. The man and woman who have raised the most across Canada will be recognized as the National Man & Woman of the year.

Congratulations to all 2019 Man & Woman of the Year candidates and team members. We are currently accepting nominations for 2020 candidates.
