Lymphoma Action

Lymphoma is the fifth most common cancer in the UK, with someone diagnosed every 27 minutes. Lymphoma Action is the only UK charity dedicated to supporting everyone affected by lymphoma – including family and friends.  We are there for people at diagnosis, through treatment, and to help them live with and beyond lymphoma. We provide quality information, reassurance and guidance and connect people going through a similar experience so that no one has to face lymphoma alone.
