How we can support you

The first time many people hear of lymphoma is when they or someone close to them is diagnosed. It can be a confusing, bewildering and scary time. Sometimes sharing your concerns with someone outside of the family or circle of friends can really help.

We know that people need support in different ways. Our dedicated helpline allows you to call us, email or chat online. Perhaps you may prefer the support of others going through a similar experience, our local support groups enable you to meet regularly with others in your area. The buddy scheme aims to put you in phone or email contact with someone who has experience of your situation. Our busy forums have many different conversations going on which you can browse through or join and comment on, whichever suits you. We have just launched a text messaging service, if you need support or information about a lymphoma diagnosis you can message us from your mobile phone.

Our range of information and support services, from the telephone helpline through to the buddy scheme, are available to everyone affected by lymphoma whether you have a diagnosis, are a partner, family member, friend or carer.
