Who We Are:
We are energetic and dedicated. We are passionate about the LLSC mission and take an active role in the fight to end blood cancers. We are the survivors. We are the sons and daughters. We are the friends and family. We are the Young Ambassadors Committee (YAC).
The mission of the Young Ambassadors Committee is to engage young, dedicated Montrealers to support The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of Canada (LLSC) by 1) raising awareness, 2) fundraising to support blood cancers research, patient access and advocacy, and 3) building a network of like-minded individuals who are passionate about creating a world without blood cancer.

"Helping others was always part of my DNA. Throughout the years, social implication became unavoidably part of my schedule, I actually recently hiked the Kilimanjaro to raise funds. We often take our health for granted and illness can affect anyone at any moment without warning. Leukemia and lymphoma touches many young people in perfect health. When I was approached to lead this committee, I didn’t have to think about it for much long. It is an occasion for me to get implicated by gathering young professionals that are health oriented and allow me to put my networking connections in place for a good cause. Most importantly, it is not the president but the entire team that makes the strength of the Young Ambassadors Committee. I am proud to be part of such a dynamic and devoted team who is ready to surpass any challenge. "
