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. 

National Lymphoma Awareness Week

September is Blood Cancer Awareness Month and every year we run National Lymphoma Awareness Week to raise awareness of lymphoma - the most common blood cancer in the UK. You can get involved by sharing your lymphoma story and helping to spread the word about the symptoms of lymphoma and the support we offer everyone affected.

National Lymphoma Awareness Week 2018 took place 10–16 September. World Lymphoma Awareness Day is on 15 September.

Know the symptoms

Lymphoma is the 5th most common cancer in the UK, but many people have never heard of it and don't know the symptoms. You can help us change this by raising awareness.

Every 27 minutes

27 in 27

Did you know that every 27 minutes a friend or loved one is diagnosed with lymphoma in the UK? Our #27in27 campaign during September helped raise awareness and funds. 


During National Lymphoma Awareness Week 2017 we asked people affected by lymphoma to share what matters to them.
