A Day of Education, Inspiration and Connection for Patients, Caregivers, Physicians and Others Affected by Cutaneous Lymphoma
On Saturday, January 14, 2012, the Cutaneous Lymphoma Foundation held a Patient Educational Forum in collaboration with the Stanford Comprehensive Cancer Center, which welcomed over 40 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.
Comments from evaluations we received express what this Forum meant to attendees:
“I really enjoyed meeting other people with a similar condition. Knowing I am not alone and that there is support out there is wonderful.”
“Meeting other patients was so helpful - I've never ever met one before!”
“Drs. Kim and Krathen's talks were wonderful. Enjoyed Susan's frank talk.”
“The camaraderie and information were so helpful to me.”
“Good presentations were given by each speaker with lots of different information.”
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. Youn Kim for her service as Chair of this Forum.
We thank 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.
