How You Can Light it Red for Lymphoma

To commemorate National Blood Cancer Awareness Month (September) and World Lymphoma Awareness Day (September 15), the Lymphoma Research Foundation (LRF) encourages individuals, buildings, landmarks and businesses to shed a light on lymphoma – not only to raise awareness about this type of blood cancer, but also to give hope to those who have been affected by this disease.  Join the Lymphoma Research Foundation to Light it Red for Lymphoma!
