Join the group

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 a great place where people understand and support each other. It offers hope, reassurance and empathy to help anyone through their journey.
Mark, in remission from Hodgkin lymphoma

The group is made up of people living with lymphoma, those who have had lymphoma, spouses and partners, and parents.

There's always so much support and understanding. People on here have different Lymphomas but there's always someone who's been there, done that and can offer advice, help and support. You're not alone. Our motto is 'You can do this!'

Although I was a bit anxious at first and unsure what to expect I’m so glad I joined the group. Although everyone’s experience of this disease is unique there is such a sense of community and helpful information. I’ve enjoyed giving as well as receiving support. I have a good circle of friends and family who have supported me throughout but this adds something different and very valuable. 
Joan, living with non-Hodgkin lymphoma
