During these uncertain times, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of Canada (LLSC) is here to support the blood cancer community. They recognize the unique concerns of people in treatment and their families during the COVID-19 pandemic, and they are amplifying their efforts through the generosity of their sponsors to provide information and support.

LLSC has established a Pilot One Mile at a Time Transportation Program to help Canadians with a blood cancer experiencing financial hardship with transportation related expenses to access a one-time per person $200.00 gift card to access rides through Uber in their community.

**As a non-profit organization, LLSC relies on the generosity of their sponsors. Program continuation is dependent on the availability of funds and the programs could be modified or discontinued at any time if funding is limited or no longer available. **

If  you  or a family member who has a blood cancer diagnosis and could use support through Uber to travel to treatment please consider  the program.
