Why Raise Funds and Awareness?
A diagnosis of – and a life with – cutaneous lymphoma is often physically and emotionally devastating. The daily quality of life of someone living with cutaneous lymphoma can be diminished due to impaired skin, discomfort, fear and depression. Cutaneous lymphomas affect thousands of people worldwide with over 30,000 people in the United States and Canada. The incidence of cutaneous lymphoma is approximately 3,000 new people being diagnosed each year.
One of the most important things that anyone can do is raise money to support research and the programs and services available through Cutaneous Lymphoma Foundation. So many aspects of the disease are beyond an individual’s control, but the ability to raise money is not one of them. There have been great advances in understanding cutaneous lymphoma, but more needs to be done. Your desire to help to raise funds to support the work of the Cutaneous Lymphoma Foundation, is deeply appreciated and needed. Your efforts will help you or your loved one, but also others around the world.
Through donations received from generous supporters, the CLF plays a vital role in helping those affected by this rare disease, learn about and understand it, find healthcare experts, understand the different treatment options, discover tips to help manage symptoms, have questions answered, receive emotional support and so much more.
Whether you raise $5 or $5000, we hope you will be inspired because you will have a positive impact in the lives of people affected around the world.
Because you will make a difference!
