Throughout September 2019 we will be sharing stories of people affected by lymphoma to show how common this cancer is and to explain how we support people affected. Every 27 minutes one of us is diagnosed with lymphoma and so we want everyone affected to know that we are here for them.
Here's four ways you can show your support:
- Order our awareness pack, which includes posters we would love you to display at your GP surgery, local supermarket, library, community centre or even your own front window. Or you could hold a lymphoma awareness stand in your local hospital, shopping centre or work place
- Follow us on social media and share, like and comment on all our social media posts throughout the month - but especially on World Lymphoma Awareness Day on Sunday 15 September. The more you share, like and comment the further the message will travel and the higher our profile will be raised!

- Tell five people who have never heard of lymphoma, what it is. This can be friends, family or work colleagues. The more people who know about lymphoma, the quicker people can get diagnosed and treated. Our awareness pack includes postcards with the most common symptoms, you can also download posters here.
- Support our 27 in 27 campaign and raise £27 in 27 days, however you like! By taking part you will not only help spread the message that someone is diagnosed with lymphoma in the UK every 27 minutes, you will also raise vital funds to support our work.
