2022 World Lymphoma Awareness Day
This World Lymphoma Awareness Day join the global lymphoma community to say We Can’t Wait to put an end to the unintended consequences the pandemic has had on the lymphoma community.
Around the world, people have faced reduced access to care, treatment, and support. As well, due to a lack of access to medical professionals and hesitancy in seeking medical attention when experiencing symptoms, there have been fewer diagnoses, and more advanced cancers are expected.
- We can’t wait to address the ways the pandemic has affected people living with lymphomas.
- We can’t wait any longer to track lymphoma subtypes. You can find resources on various lymphoma subtypes here.
Visit www.worldlymphomaawarenessday.org for more information or materials to share on your social media accounts. Use #WLAD2022 to join the global conversation.
