Lymphoma is the 3rd most common type of cancer among children - following leukemia and brain and central nervous system (CNS) tumours. Lymphoma is a type of cancer that impacts the lymphatic system - the body system responsible for the functioning of the immune response. It happens when white blood cells - called lymphocytes - begin growing abnormally at uncontrollable speeds.Ā 

Typically, children diagnosed with lymphoma fall under two categories: Hodgkin's lymphoma and non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. Both these forms of lymphoma are fast-growing and therefore require immediate medical attention.

Advancements in lymphoma research have allowed for optimistic prognoses among children; yet, the journey to remission for these children is not easy. Children with lymphoma are typically treated with intensive chemotherapy, radiotherapy, and (sometimes) antibody therapy and surgery. These treatments can be long and strenuous with irreversible long-term side effects.

Thank you for your purchase and for honouring the accomplishments and challenges of childhood lymphoma patients, their families and survivors in Ontario and beyond.
