For the eighth straight year, groups around the world are recognizing September 15 as World Lymphoma Awareness Day (WLAD).

A product of the Lymphoma Coalition, World Lymphoma Awareness Day is a day to bring attention and awareness to lymphoma and to the estimated one million people alive today dealing with a lymphoma diagnosis.

Lymphoma is a most elusive cancer, featuring a list of subtypes that is in the dozens and always growing. Despite this difficulty, patients with several subtypes-- including Hodgkin's lymphoma -- have benefitted from the last few decades of research, giving some lymphomas some of the highest survival and cure rates among all known cancers.
