Cutaneous Lymphoma Patient Educational Forum

In collaboration with University of Colorado Cancer Center

Date and Time

Saturday, May 14, 2011 - 8:30am - 3:30pm

On Saturday, May 14, 2011, the Cutaneous Lymphoma Foundation held a Patient Educational Forum in collaboration with the University of Colorado Cancer Center, which welcomed over 50 attendees, many of whom were patients who enjoyed a day of education and the opportunity to connect with others who share in their journey living with cutaneous lymphoma.

This Forum was offered to help patients, caregivers and others affected by cutaneous lymphoma receive accurate information about cutaneous lymphoma, learn about current treatment options and promising future therapies, connect with other people who share similar experiences, and obtain information about resources and support available.

The Cutaneous Lymphoma Foundation extends its thanks and gratitude to all of the outstanding speakers who presented at this Forum.  We extend special thanks to Dr. Theresa Pacheco for her service as Chair of this Forum.

In Forum evaluations we received, attendees noted the following:

“I found the variety of speakers with a broad knowledge of cutaneous lymphoma most helpful.”
“The most helpful thing to me was to sit in a room with so many other people who have the same disease I do.  It’s also helpful to know everyone is just as frustrated as I am about finding answers.”
“I thought there was a good balance of information and a robust Q & A session.”
“Having access to the doctors and other patients was most helpful to me.”

The Cutaneous Lymphoma Foundation thanks all of our attendees for joining us and making this event a great success.  Together, we are making sure that each person with cutaneous lymphoma gets the best care possible.
