We Can’t Wait – to Focus on Our Feelings!
World Lymphoma Awareness Day (WLAD) is held on 15 September 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 2023, the global network of lymphoma patient organisations is saying We Can’t Wait to Focus on Our Feelings.
Too often when someone is living with lymphoma, the psychological and emotional challenges that affect how people are feeling are overlooked. But learning to cope with challenging feelings can have many benefits including closer relationships with family and friends, feeling more connected with yourself, and being better able to live in the moment.
