A young person with lymphoma

Lymphoma is the most common group of cancers in teenagers and young adults (15 to 24 years old). Every year in the UK, more than 500 teenagers and young people are diagnosed. If you are a young person with lymphoma, you are not alone. We're here to support you, whether you want to learn more about lymphoma, hear from other young people affected by lymphoma, or find out how you can raise awareness. 


Information and support

We offer information and tips to help you feel better informed, confident, and more in control, to help you live well, with and beyond lymphoma.
