A Day of Education, Inspiration and Connection for Patients, Caregivers, Physicians and Others Affected by Cutaneous Lymphoma

On Saturday, October 22, 2011, the Cutaneous Lymphoma Foundation held a Patient Educational Forum in collaboration with the University of Pittsburgh Medical 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 Sue McCann for her service as Chair of this Forum.

In Forum evaluations we received, attendees noted the following:

“I most enjoyed the Q&A:  Hearing from doctors, patients and caregivers.”

“All the speakers were very clear and enjoyable to listen to.”

“I really enjoyed everything - just talking to other people like me.”

“The medications, what they do and for who – that was most helpful to me.”

“This Forum provided new information for me - good basic overview, Q&A.”

“This yearly event has always been a special fall blessing for us.”

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.
