A Day of Education, Inspiration and Connection for Patients, Caregivers, Physicians and Others Affected by Cutaneous Lymphoma
On Saturday, November 5, 2011, the Cutaneous Lymphoma Foundation held a Patient Educational Forum in collaboration with Moffitt Cancer Center, which welcomed approximately 25 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 Drs. Glass and Sokol for their service as Co-Chairs of this Forum.
In Forum evaluations we received, attendees noted the following:
“Dr. Sokol and Dr. Glass' discussion of the diagnosis prognosis and treatment of CTCL was most helpful because we now recognize the terminology of every aspect of the disease.”
“I'm so happy to belong to this event, I don't think I could say anything that would make it even better.”
“We're not alone.”
“It was wonderful - first time I have met other people with CTCL.”
“Learning - This is only four days old to me and I can't help to worry, but less now that I attended this Forum.”
"Everyone was very generous with their information. We learned a lot - the disease isn't as scary to 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.
