EVENT DATE: Feb 09, 2014
Raise Funds for Research, Attend a Foundation Event or Join a Local Chapter
The Lymphoma Research Foundation (LRF) is the nation's largest non-profit organization devoted to funding innovative lymphoma research and providing people with lymphoma and healthcare professionals with up-to-date information about this type of cancer. Whether you are a patient, survivor, family member, caregiver or healthcare professional, there are many ways you can become involved with LRF.
Join hundreds of survivors and caregivers as they walk to raise funds for lymphoma research and education by participating in a local Lymphomathon. Since 2003, this charity walk program has raised over $7.5 million! LRF also offers volunteers the opportunity to support lymphoma research through local and community fundraising events.
The Foundation presents a wide variety of educational programs and services for patient and their healthcare team. Attend a patient education conference or contact the LRF for the latest disease-specific treatment information. Physicians and nurses can attend LRF events specifically tailored for them, including CME programs.
You can also choose from many types of volunteer opportunities, within LRF's Chapter Network. Through this nation-wide network, the Foundation meets the needs of the lymphoma community on the local level. Chapter volunteers educate others about lymphoma; reach out to newly diagnosed patients, raise funds for research, and participate in the LRF Advocacy Program.
