World Lymphoma Awareness Day 2017 | Leukaemia Foundation

World Lymphoma Awareness Day 2017

Each year the Leukaemia Foundation marks World Lymphoma Awareness Day to help increase the understanding and awareness of the fifth most common cancer in Australia.

This year we’re helping those diagnosed with lymphoma, as well as their carers, family and friends, achieve balance in their daily life, providing information and support to help you deal with the impact of lymphoma.

We will be running a series of events all over Australia. Queensland events are listed below; other events across Australia can be found here.
