The Lymphoma Association provides specialist information and support to anyone affected by lymphoma - the most common blood cancer and the fifth most frequently diagnosed cancer overall in the UK.
Around 14,000 people in the UK are diagnosed with lymphatic cancer each year. Our mission is to ensure that anyone affected receives the specialist information and support that they need to help them cope. Lymphoma can occur in both men and women and at any age, but it is most common in people aged 15–35 or over 55.
The Lymphoma Association:
- provides information and support for anyone affected
- raises awareness of lymphoma and its symptoms
- represents patients' (and carers') views to policy and decision makers
- collaborates with health professionals and other charities and organisations
We rely totally on voluntary funding.
Lymphoma Association aims to:
- Provide a specialist support and information service to those affected by lymphoma and to ensure that our information is available to all new patients at the point of diagnosis.
- Run educational opportunities for health professionals to increase specialist knowledge of lymphoma and to share best practice.
- Raise awareness of lymphoma and represent patients' views to government, policy makers, the media and key influencers.
