In today’s episode, Victoria Emslie, Manager of External Relations at Nicola Wealth speaks with Ryan O’Quinn, BC’s Regional Director of the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society of Canada (LLSC), to discuss the work they are doing to support patients and help find a cure for blood cancers. They are also joined by Pat Alexander, this year’s Honored Hero for the Vancouver 2020 Light the Night walk in support of the LLSC.
The work LLSC does is lifesaving. Not only do they provide patient care and support, but they drive fundraising for research across the country. With 137 different types of blood cancers, it is an understatement to say that the work that they do is incredibly critical. It involves specialized diagnosis, treatment, and approaches.
Together, Victoria, Ryan, and Pat discuss what the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society of Canada does, the many milestones that have been reached in the journey for the cure of blood cancers, and their incredible virtual event, Light the Night. Pat also shares his personal story of diagnosis and recovery, how he channels his own experience to help those who have been recently diagnosed, and the volunteer work he is doing with the LLSC.
Be sure to tune in for this episode to learn more about LLSC’s impact and how you can personally make a difference in others’ lives.
