World Lymphoma Awareness Day 2015
Thank you to everyone who was involved in World Lymphoma Awareness Day 2015. We had a great response from the international community.
On September 15, the global lymphoma community stood together to raise awareness of lymphomas.
Patients with lymphomas around the world face barriers in access to care and quality of life. We understand the importance of research, funding, education and awareness to patient outcomes.
There is still a large number of people that don't know what lymphomas are and we need you’re your help to tackle this problem.
Raise Awareness Throughout the Year
It's important to remember that raising much needed awareness of lymphomas does not only need to happen on September 15. Be a part of a collective voice of those advocating for patients with lymphoma. We need to tell the world that lymphoma is a cancer that can’t be ignored.
How you can get involved:
Share the global awareness message on social media, to friends and family.
- Most people don't know what lymphoma is and that's a problem.
