At these meetings you'll meet others with low-grade non-Hodgkin lymphomas (slow growing or ‘indolent’ types) that have not yet needed treatment such as chemotherapy. Instead, your medical team will regularly monitor you for changes in your lymphoma and symptoms that mean you would benefit from treatment. Active monitoring can last for long periods and be difficult to cope with, emotionally and practically.
If you are being monitored after treatment (full or partial remission) or are on maintenance therapy to prolong your remission, please register one of our other support meetings, which will better meet your needs.
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.
To register for our support meetings, you need to be aged 18 or over, resident in the UK, and personally affected by lymphoma.
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.
If this meeting isn't convenient for you, we also have an Active Monitoring meeting on the first Thursday of the month, at 7.30pm.
