Are there additional duties or fees on international orders?
International shipments may be subject to import taxes, customs duties and fees, which are imposed once a shipment reaches the recipient's country. Additional charges for customs clearance must be fulfilled by the recipient. Lymphoma Canada has no control over these charges, nor can Lymphoma Canada fully predict what they may be.
Customs, duties, and taxes are non-refundable. The cost of the original shipping and any return shipping charges will not be refunded for any shipments that are refused because of unexpected import fees. Customs policies vary widely from country to country. Lymphoma Canada recommends that you contact your local customs office for more information.
When customs clearance procedures are required, it can cause delays beyond our original delivery estimates.

What is Lymphoma Canada?
We are Canada’s only national organization focused entirely on lymphoma.
As a registered charity, we are led by a volunteer board of directors drawn from the Canadian lymphoma community. Our board includes lymphoma patients as well as medical and research professionals. A small, dedicated staff brings expertise in program implementation, communications, fundraising, and administration. We are guided by expert members of a Scientific Advisory Board. Lymphoma patients across the country help organize, and participate in, education events, support groups, online webinars, and fundraising events.
Lymphoma Canada operates in both official languages, with staffed offices in Ontario and Quebec and a volunteer presence across the country.
What is lymphoma?
Lymphoma is a cancer of the lymphatic system. In lymphoma a tumour develops due to abnormal and out-of-control growth of abnormal lymphocytes. Because the lymphatic system exists throughout the body and involves many organs, there may be cancerous tumours in many parts of the body. Lymphoma encompasses a variety of cancers specific to the lymphatic system, an important network of glands and vessels that make up the body’s immune system, our main line of defense against disease. There are two main categories of lymphoma: Hodgkin and non-Hodgkin (NHL).
What causes lymphoma?
The cause or causes of lymphoma are largely a mystery. There may be some genetic predisposition, or it may be caused by an environmental trigger such as pollution. There is not, however, sufficient evidence to provide a definitive answer. It has been shown that some NHLs of the digestive tract such as mucosa-associated lymphatic tissue (MALT) lymphomas may be caused by Helicobacter pylori infection. There also seems to be a link with Epstein-Barr virus and gene relocation in some forms of Burkitt’s lymphoma.
Where is my money going?
Proceeds from merchandise sales go directly to Lymphoma Canada to help us achieve our mandate of promoting early detection, finding new and better treatments, helping patients access those treatments, learning lymphoma's causes, and finding a cure.
Lymphoma Canada provides, at no cost and in both official languages: electronic and print materials on the Hodgkin lymphoma, non-Hodgkin lymphoma and CLL, peer and caregiver support groups, educational forums and advocacy on behalf of patients. Lymphoma Canada also funds Canadian research.
How do I volunteer?
Lymphoma Canada is always seeking volunteers to help achieve our mission of empowering lymphoma patients and the lymphoma community, through education, support and research. For a full list of current volunteer opportunities, please visit our website here.
