This past Sunday, I had the honor and privilege of sharing my story and leading 1500 survivors and supporters in the twist. The Lymphoma Research Foundation had their 10th annual walk which raises money and awareness about Lymphoma.
The Lymphoma Research Foundation (LRF) is the nation’s largest non-profit organization devoted exclusively to funding innovative lymphoma research and providing people with lymphoma and healthcare professionals with up-to-date information about this type of cancer. LRF’s mission is to eradicate lymphoma and serve those touched by this disease.
LRF assists members of the lymphoma community by providing comprehensive, disease-specific programs and services to more than 35,000 people each year, including:
- Clinical Trials Information Service
- Disease-Specific Publications and Websites
- In-person Workshops and Educational Forums
- Lymphoma Helpline
- Lymphoma Support Network
- Online Resources, Teleconferences and Webcasts/Podcasts
- Patient Aid Grants
- Professional Education
- Public Policy and Advocacy
- Volunteer Chapter Network
In the last 10 years, LRF’s Chicago based “Lymphomathons”- are not only the largest and most highly attended in the country- but they have raised upwards of 3 million dollars!
It was a pleasure to be able to be a part of this event. There is nothing quite like seeing a sea of survivors and supporters- twisting out cancer.
