The Lymphoma Association

We are the only charity in the UK dedicated to supporting people affected by lymphoma

Charity Registration No. 1068395

Story

 Inspired by the courage and determination of our daughter, Hayley, who was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, aged 23, last year and her subsequent chemotherapy treatment of eight months, Chris & I decided, this year, to do a sponsored TRIATHLON in aid of the Lymphoma Association (LA). 

The Triathlon consists of a 1km swim, 40km bike ride and a 10km run. Training has been in earnest since the beginning of the year, with gym membership and the help of a personal trainer. There has been blood (bruises, actually), sweat; lots and lots and tears; mine not Chris’s. In recognition of this we ask you to dig as deep as you can…just take a look at the photo, two over fifties shouldn’t be dressed like that!  

 Our aim is to raise a substantial amount for the LA.

 The LA is the only specialist UK charity providing support to patients affected by lymphatic cancer, their friends and family.  More than 12,000 new cases are diagnosed each year - a number that is steadily rising.

In the UK, lymphoma is the 6th most common cancer diagnosed by clinicians and the most common cancer affecting the under 30 age group
