Patient Testimonials

A Google search on lymphoma delivers 242 millions results: how to find credible information relevant to me? That is where Lymphoma Canada played an important role.

RobertDiffuse Large B Cell Lymphoma (DLBCL) Patient

Lymphoma Canada allowed me to better understand my type of cancer by participating in various webinars. I learned more about active surveillance. The whole period of "watch and wait" was insane for me, thanks to Lymphoma Canada I learned that it was a treatment, in fact, I received an explanatory leaflet concerning this treatment. Also, I received materials on Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma and how to live during and after Lymphoma. I take this moment to thank Lymphoma Canada with all my heart for accompanying us through a life-changing journey. THANKS!

My first advice is, don't stay alone in your questions, use all available resources and dare to ask your questions to your healthcare team. Afterwards, if you feel like it, take part in the Lymphoma Canada webinars. Above all, trust science and your healthcare team. Allow yourself to welcome the emotions that come into you, whether negative or positive, allow yourself to live.
