National Conference 2019

Thank you to everyone who joined us in London on Saturday 11 May 2019

Our 2020 conference will take place in Manchester on 16 May - book your place today!


Every year we host our National Conference for anyone affected by lymphoma. It’s a chance for people to come together and share questions, concerns and stories about living with and beyond the condition. Our 2019 event, held in London on 11 May, had a focus on family members; exploring how a diagnosis can affect loved ones too. Our expert panel of speakers gave inspiring, uplifting and interactive presentations about topics we knew mattered to you
