A national cancer charity is encouraging people who have been affected by lymphatic cancer to attend a support group meeting next week.

The Stevenage Lymphoma Association support group will hold the meeting at the town’s Lister Hospital from 7pm next Wednesday, September 16.

The group is made up of individuals who are, or have been, affected by lymphoma in some way – including patients, family members, partners, friends and carers.

If you would like to attend the meeting at the Coreys Mill Lane hospital, or would like further information about the group, you can call the free helpline on 0808 808 5555 or visit the charity’s website at www.lymphomas.org.uk.

Founded by patients in 1986, the charity is dedicated to providing accurate medical information and support to people affected by lymphatic cancer.
