15 september 2015 : world Lymphoma Awareness Day

07 Sep 2015 | By Inserm (Newsroom) | Uncategorized

To mark the 8th World Lymphoma Day in France, the France Lymphome Espoir (France Lymphoma Hope) association is conducting a tour of eight large cities in France from 15 to 25 September.
Patients, those close to them, and caregivers are thus invited to share their experience on themes such as care and living with the disease.

Lymphoma is currently the 5th most common cancer, and the leading cancer in adolescents and young adults. This disease of the lymphatic system, a key component of the immune system, is different from cancers of organs since it can develop throughout the entire system.*
