Light It Red for Lymphoma – A Blood Cancer Awareness Month Initiative
What is Blood Cancer Awareness Month?
Due in large part to the Lymphoma Research Foundation’s Advocacy Program, the month of September was designated Blood Cancer Awareness Month (BCAM) by the U.S. Congress in 2010. The blood cancer community uses BCAM to raise awareness and educate others about these diseases.
What is Light It Red for Lymphoma?
The Lymphoma Research Foundation has been a pioneer in paving the way for a brighter future for all those touched by lymphoma. Light it Red for Lymphoma is the Foundation’s signature Blood Cancer Awareness Month initiative where individuals, buildings, landmarks and businesses are encouraged to shed a “light” on lymphoma on World Lymphoma Awareness Day (September 15). Light it Red not only raises awareness about this type of blood cancer, but also gives hope to those who have been affected by this disease.
Community Partners are local and state governments, organizations, institutions, as well as national and local businesses committed to raising awareness for lymphoma and all blood cancers during BCAM.
