Lymphoma survivors and their caregivers receive information, interaction, encouragement and support through treatment and recovery.

The Living Beyond Lymphoma support group, sponsored by the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, meets Tuesday, July 10, from 6-7:30 p.m. on the first floor of the Baptist Hospital East Cancer Resource Center, 4007 Kresge Way.
The support group meets the second Tuesday of each month. Survivors and their caregivers receive information, interaction, encouragement and support through treatment and recovery. Led by specially trained professionals, each session allows for sharing experiences as the survivors learn about their disease and how to care for themselves.
Facilitators include a nurse practitioner and Social Worker Carol Holland.
Lymphoma is a type of cancer that affects cells of the immune system, called lymphocytes. There are two types of lymphocytes, called B cells and T cells. These cells produce antibodies and kill pathogens in the body. Lymphoma occurs when either B or T cell lymphocytes transform and begin multiplying uncontrollably. This growth can cause the lymphomas to harm other tissues and organs.
The group is open to diagnosed lymphoma survivors and their caregivers or loved ones. Other special sessions may be included as the group desires.
This support group is free. For more information, contact Holland at (502) 897-1166 ext. 1501.
