Join Lymphoma Action Support UK on Facebook

We have taken the decision not to run our face-to-face support groups for the time being. However, to help maintain the strong sense of community that our support groups provide, we have launched a new UK-wide closed Facebook group. We hope it will provide emotional and practical peer support for anyone affected by lymphoma and connect them with others who understand. The group aims to be supportive and uplifting, whilst recognising people may be going through a difficult time. To join the group, you can search for ‘Lymphoma Action Support UK’ on Facebook and click join.
