At these support meetings, you’ll meet others who are managing the additional challenges of these rare types of lymphoma, including symptoms that can be distressing, the reactions of other people, and the difficulty of getting a diagnosis.
- Lymphomas that start in another part of the body then spread to the skin are not cutaneous lymphomas. Anyone in this situation is welcome to join one of our General Support Meetings or any of the other specialised meetings for which you are eligible.
- Carers are not eligible to join these meetings. Instead, you are welcome to join one of our Family, Friends and Carers Support Meetings.
If this meeting isn't convenient for you, we also have a Cutaneous Lymphoma support meeting on the fourth Thursday of the month, at 7.30pm.
Our support meetings provide a safe, confidential place where people affected by lymphoma can talk to each other about their experience, express their thoughts and feelings, gain insight from connecting with others, and get support and information. The facilitators will listen, seek to understand your experience and help address any questions or worries you have.
Support meetings are hosted on Zoom, last an hour and follow a common structure, including time for everyone to share your experience and feelings about life with lymphoma. You don't need a Zoom account or experience of using Zoom but will need access to an internet-enabled device.
To register for the support meeting service, you must be aged 18 or over, resident in the UK, and personally affected by lymphoma.
