The Lymphoma Research Foundation Canada (LRFC) is a non-profit organization that was founded in 1998 to provide support for those affected by lymphoma and for individuals who conduct research in the diagnosis, treatment, and cure of these diseases. Lymphoma is a group of cancers affecting the lymphatic system, which is a network of glands and vessels that collect the thin, watery fluid known as lymph from different areas of the body and drain it into the bloodstream. The lymphatic system also functions as an essential part of the immune system. Lymphoma may be classified into two major categories that are distinguished by cell type: Hodgkin's disease and non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. Both may be characterized by similar symptoms including night sweats, painless swelling of lymph nodes, fever, fatigue, itching, and weight loss. The focus of the LRCF is on lymphoma issues and treatment in Canada. The LRCF provides information on research currently being conducted in Canada; offers understandable reports on the lymphatic system that include the incidence, classification, causes, diagnosis, staging, and treatment of lymphomas; and has a web site.
