World Lymphoma Awareness Day
Living with lymphoma can leave you feeling uncertain, with many questions, worries and doubts.
World Lymphoma Awareness Day on 15 September helps to bring these to light and tell the story about the most commonly diagnosed blood cancer in Australia.
For World Lymphoma Awareness Day 2018, the Lymphoma Coalition, of which the Leukaemia Foundation is a member, is launching the Small Things Build Confidence campaign. Everyone affected by or connected to lymphoma can join the global online conversation and share the small things that help them feel more confident.
Here’s some of the things people living with blood cancer have shared with us already:

To mark World Lymphoma Awareness Day, the Leukaemia Foundation has also published a new video from Associate Professor Jake Shortt, who answers some of the most common questions about non-Hodgkin lymphoma.
Associate Professor Shortt was a speaker at our recent Blood Cancer Conference.
