Campaigning

We seek to raise awareness of lymphoma and influence policy and practice that promotes the best outcomes for those affected, now and in the future. 

Lymphoma awareness

Lymphoma is the UK's fifth most common cancer, but is not well known and the signs and symptoms are often overlooked. 

We are committed to raising awareness of lymphoma and the signs to look out for - with a focus in September for Blood Cancer Awareness Month which includes World Lymphoma Awareness Day on 15 September.

Blood Cancer Awareness Month

Every 27 minutes, a friend or loved one in the UK is diagnosed with lymphoma. Lymphoma is the most common form of blood cancer so we use Blood Cancer Awareness Month to raise awareness and vital funds to support our work.
