Patient Experience

Getting a cancer diagnosis is an overwhelming experience. It is perfectly normal to be shocked by the diagnosis, anxious about the future, and confused about the medical information and decisions that need to be made.

If you were recently diagnosed with lymphoma, you probably have many questions about the disease, how it is treated and what your future will look like.

The information in this webiste is meant to act as a guide.  It will help you understand the nature of lymphoma and what to expect from treatments, including any possible side effects. The more you know about your disease, the more confident you will be in making decisions with your doctors about your care and wellbeing.

Information. Help. Hope.

You don’t have to face lymphoma alone. Lymphoma Canada connects patients, their family and friends, medical professionals, researchers, volunteers, and donors to build a strong lymphoma community.

  • A community that conducts research to learn lymphoma's causes, to develop better treatments, and to find a cure.
  • A community that helps people talk about and cope with the fifth most common cancer in Canada.
  • A community that invites you to get and give support.
