25 Years of Supporting Patients Dealing with the Psychosocial Effects of Lymphoma

For the past 25 years, Lymphoma Canada has raised awareness about lymphoma, its symptoms, diagnostics, and treatments. However, lymphoma also impacts patients in ways beyond the physical, namely psychologically and socially. It is important for Canadians to recognize these effects of lymphoma and to understand how to receive support.

Lymphoma Canada provides free resources and access to support groups to help the over 100,000 Canadians who are currently living with these impacts.
