Tune in to BBC Radio 4 on Sunday 3 November at 7.54am or 9.26pm or Thursday 7 November at 3.27pm to hear Carol share her lymphoma story.
Carol, a professional trombonist, was 26 when she was diagnosed with Hodgkin lymphoma and she faced nearly a decade of treatment.
Throughout it all, Carol and her Mum were supported by Lymphoma Action and so she wants to ensure other families facing a lymphoma diagnosis get the same vital support and information.
This is an important opportunity for us to raise awareness of lymphoma - which affects more than 50 families a day in the UK - and the support that we offer to those facing the shock of a diagnosis.
We hope that you will listen and share with your family, friends and colleagues too - the more people that hear the appeal, the more we can raise the profile of the most common cancer in young people.
If you use social media, then we would be grateful if you could also post to help us spread the word further - below is some suggested wording you can use:
Listen to the BBC Radio 4 Appeal this week to hear Carol share her lymphoma story for @LymphomaAction - more than 50 families every day have to face the shock of a #lymphoma diagnosis and it's the most common cancer in young people https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/m0009yxn #R4Appeal
Don't worry if you miss the appeal broadcasts - it is available to listen to online via BBC Sounds too.
Thank you in advance for your support!
