In response to the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, we extended our closed regional Facebook groups to cover the whole of the UK, and welcomed hundreds of new members. The new UK-wide group brings together people living with lymphoma, recovering from lymphoma, and family members and friends.
We now have over 1,500 members and whether you are newly diagnosed or many years on from treatment, the group offers valuable peer support at any time.
Here is what some of our members think about the group.
The group is made up of people living with lymphoma, those who have had lymphoma, spouses and partners, and parents.
How does the group help its members?
Being part of the Facebook group brings many benefits to its members. From feeling understood and acknowledged to having a social connection and getting hints and tips from other group members about hope to cope with living with and beyond lymphoma.
90% of members would recommend the group to others!
