Online support meetings

These meetings are a safe place to connect with others affected by lymphoma, share your experiences and find valuable support.

Our online support meetings are hosted on Zoom by Lymphoma Action staff and volunteer facilitators. They last for one hour and usually take place monthly. We limit the number of people registered for each meeting to enable everyone to participate fully - but will add further meetings to meet demand. 

We run general meetings open to anyone affected by lymphoma in geographic areas, plus special meetings for particular groups and on topics of interest  - so we hope you can find something that's suitable for you! Anyone aged 18 or over, resident in the UK, who is personally affected by lymphoma (including carers) is welcome to join. 

To register, please complete the registration form at the bottom of this page.

Special Focus Online Support Meetings provide an opportunity to share experience and gain mutual support for people affected by a particular type of lymphoma, treatment or experience on the lymphoma journey.  Bookings open when the next topic is announced. 

The next topic is Late effects of treatment, on 24 May, 7-8pm.

This meeting is for people who are experiencing or might experience late effects (long-term side effects) of treatment. Late effects are health problems that may develop months, years or even decades after treatment for lymphoma, generally chemotherapy or radiotherapy. Late effects include problems with the heart or lungs, secondary cancers, reduced fertility, hypothyroidism, cataracts, glaucoma or tooth decay.
