World Lymphoma Awareness Day

World Lymphoma Awareness Day (WLAD) is held on September 15 every year and is a day dedicated to raising awareness of lymphoma, an increasingly common form of cancer. It is a global initiative hosted by the Lymphoma Coalition. WLAD was initiated in 2004 to raise public awareness of all lymphoma subtypes in terms of symptom recognition, early diagnosis and treatment.[1]

World Lymphoma Awareness Day 2020

Around the world, more than 735,000 people are diagnosed with lymphoma, including CLL, every year. With this lesser known type of cancer, patients face a variety of unique challenges and rely on the support of a team of professionals and personal connections throughout their cancer experience. 

For the 2020 World Lymphoma Awareness Day, the global lymphoma community joined together to give A World of Thanks to show gratitude to those who help people living with lymphoma.
