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 26 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 every September to raise awareness and vital funds to support our work.

Symptoms awareness

Lymphoma is the 5th most common cancer, but many people have never heard of it and don't know the symptoms - find out how you can help us change this!

 

Influencing

We conduct research, gather information, and analyse facts and figures to produce reports and briefings that influence and inform. We also work with organisations and charities that share our commitment to improving the lives of those affected by blood cancer.

Policy and influence

As a voice for people affected by lymphoma, our role is to highlight the issues they face in order to influence the policies and decisions that affect them.

Health technology assessments and consultations

We ensure the lymphoma patient voice is heard through our involvement in health technology assessments (HTAs) and also by responding to relevant government consultations to influence policy and practice.
