IT’S A FACT: Small Things Build Confidence
World Lymphoma Awareness Day Celebrates Building Confidence with More Information and Support
World Lymphoma Awareness Day is September 15. It’s celebrated around the world to raise awareness of cancers of the lymphatic system. Since its launch in 2004, it has been a day dedicated to raising awareness of lymphomas, cancers of the lymphatic system.
This year's World Lymphoma Awareness Day campaign is Small Things Build Confidence, a campaign focused on sharing facts about lymphomas and empowering people with cancers of the lymphatic system.It is inspired by Lymphoma Coalition research, which shows that confidence is built when a patient has information and support and plays a significant role in positive healthcare experiences and outcomes.
People around the world are invited to do a small thing to support and empower people living with lymphoma. Regardless of where you live or the language you speak, sharing a fact about lymphoma on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram with the hashtag #WLAD2019 will help the international Confidence Tree grow, a real-time instalment that represents the support and information that help and empower those living with lymphoma.
The Confidence Tree will be launched at the end of August, at www.worldlymphomaawarenessday.com.
