More than 14,000 new cases of lymphoma are diagnosed each year in the UK, making it the most common cancer in the under 30s and the 5th most common cancer diagnosed overall. Despite this, awareness of lymphoma is relatively low and many people have not heard of it unless they have been affected in some way.
You can help us raise vital awareness of lymphoma and its symptoms by:
- Joining our facebook group and following us on twitter
- Selling our pin badges to your family and friends
Asking your local hospital or cancer care centre to stock our
information sheets and booklets
- Writing to your local paper to tell them your story and encourage readers to support us
- Going along to a fundraising event taking place near you, or organise your own event in support of the Lymphoma Association
- Volunteering to staff a lymphoma awareness stand at your local library for a day.
