About this event

Our Lymphoma Focus Day, on Saturday 8 May, is a great opportunity to learn more about lymphoma and to meet up with others who are affected by this type of blood cancer.

This year, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we aren’t able to run our usual face to face national conference, however you can sign up to access our web page with over five hours of information videos from expert speakers. We also signpost a host of further resources that relate to each video, to make sure you can view all of the information and support that we offer from one place.

Video topics include:

  • Hodgkin lymphoma, including new and future treatments – Professor John Radford, Professor of Medical Oncology, The Christie
  • Low-grade non-Hodgkin lymphoma – Dr Rob Lown, Consultant Haematologist, ‎University Hospital Southampton
  • High-grade non-Hodgkin lymphoma – Dr Adam Gibb, Clinical Research Fellow, The Christie
  • Active monitoring and keeping vigilant – Sarah Wells, Lymphoma Clinical Nurse Specialist, The Christie
  • Personal experience of lymphoma - Emma Forbes, radio and TV presenter
  • Practical toolkit: Fatigue and physical exercise – Jennifer Woods, Senior Haematology Oncology Occupational Therapist, and Aimee Green, Specialist Haematology Physiotherapist, The Christie
  • Emotional toolkit – Angela Waind, Consultant Counselling Psychologist, North Cumbria Integrated Care NHS Foundation Trust

The web page will be made live at 9am on Saturday 8 May and will remain exclusively accessible to conference delegates until 31 July, so you can watch the videos where and when it suits you.

If you are able, we would really appreciate it if you could make a donation to help towards our costs of bringing this information together. You can make a donation by adding the 'make a donation' ticket to your basket when you book.
