Whether you are newly-diagnosed or have been living with your diagnosis for a long time, our programs provide information that can help you improve and maintain your quality of life while living with cutaneous lymphoma.
The Cutaneous Lymphoma Foundation offers FREE Patient Educational Forums (PEF) to help patients, caregivers and others affected by cutaneous lymphoma receive accurate information about the disease. Forums are an opportunity to learn about current treatment options and research, connect with other people who share similar experiences, and obtain information about resources and support available. For those who can't attend in person, we provide a live webcast of the PEF with the opportunity to participate in the event via the internet.
The annual 2-Day Patient Conference is two days of learning, connecting and celebrating for patients, their family and/or friends. The 2-Day Conference offers clinical presentations, diagnosis-specific breakout groups, open Q&A discussions with clinicians as well as presentations related to daily-living topics. Unique to the 2-day is the time devoted to creating opportunities for attendees to connect with each other and build friendships with others also impacted by cutaneous lymphoma.
Mark your calendars!
For many individuals it can be difficult to find answers to the questions they have about cutaneous lymphoma and its treatment. These FREE question and answer events with local expert clinicians provide patients, caregivers and others affected by the disease to ask their questions in a relaxed atmosphere. The events are generally held in the evening and are typically two hours in length with dinner included.
Watch this space for upcoming 2020 events!
Facebook Live events are live-streamed interviews hosted on the Cutaneous Lymphoma Foundation's Facebook page. Guest interviewees include cutaneous lymphoma clinicians and researchers, insurance experts, as well as patients and care partners -- and you'll have the opportunity to ask questions of our guests live! We hope you will join us for these social media events.
