BLOOD CANCER AWARENESS MONTH

September is Blood Cancer Awareness Month, a time for members of the lymphoma community to harness their power, drive awareness, educate those around them and raise critical funds to support life-saving research.

For the past 10 years, the Lymphoma Research Foundation has been celebrating Blood Cancer Awareness Month and World Lymphoma Awareness Day (September 15) to shine a light on lymphoma, create fundraising opportunities to support innovative lymphoma research, and make the future brighter for all those touched by this disease.

LIGHT IT RED FOR LYMPHOMA

Light it Red for Lymphoma is LRF’s grassroots Blood Cancer Awareness Month initiative that brings lymphoma awareness to the global conversation by lighting buildings, landmarks, bridges, monuments, and homes red.

Learn how you can light your home red for lymphoma and view our list of Lighting Partners committed to Light it Red for Lymphoma!

FUNDRAISE

Fundraising is easy and also helps to raise awareness among your network of friends, families, colleagues and community.  From creating a Facebook Fundraiser, to coordinating a one-time event like a red bake sale or happy hour fundraiser through Team LRF Fundraise You Way, the options are endless!

WEAR RED FOR LYMPHOMA

Wear red in honor of Blood Cancer Awareness Month and World Lymphoma Awareness Day! Visit one of our many Lighting Partners lighting during the month of September and share your photos on social media using #LightItRed!

PROCLAMATIONS & LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

Obtaining a proclamation from your governor, mayor, or city council and submitting a letter to the editor of your local news publication is a wonderful way to raise awareness for lymphoma in your community.
