I received this as an email and am posting it here for all of my friends and any patients who stumble across my blog searching for information on Non Hodgkin's Lymphoma. I have learned that 1 in 50 people will be diagnosed with Lymphoma in their lifetime. There is no screening for this form of cancer.
September 15th is Worldwide Lymphoma Awareness Day. GET INVOLVED!
This is an annual event to help bring awareness of lymphoma to the world.
Lymphoma is the 5th most common cancer in the western hemisphere, and it
is one of the few cancers that is increasing in incidence over the past 50
years. Download the Excel spreadsheet graph at the bottom of our Oak Leaf
Awareness pin page. (Order a pin and support the cause while you are at it)
Teach your friends about lymphoma and have them take the "Know your Nodes"
quiz from the Worldwide Lymphoma Coalition. (http://www.lymphomacoalition.org/ )
