We Can’t Wait – there is an urgent need to improve the ways lymphomas are diagnosed, treated and tracked!
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.
In 2022, we are calling for improvements when it comes to diagnosing, treating and tracking lymphomas:
We Can’t Wait to address the ways the pandemic has affected people living with lymphomas.
This includes delayed access to treatment and care, hesitancy in seeking medical care, delays in diagnoses and an increased mental health burden on people living with lymphoma and caregivers.

We Can’t Wait any longer to track lymphoma subtypes.
When we track subtypes, locally and globally, we will understand the actual disease prevalence and outcomes and improve patient care and research.
