The Paul Foundation believes adolescent and young adult patients with lymphoma are an understudied population that would particularly benefit from studies, which will complement and synergize with ongoing lymphoma clinical trials within the NCI Cancer Cooperative Groups.
What Is Lymphoma?
Lymphoma is the name for a group of blood cancers that develop in the lymphatic system. The two main types are Hodgkin lymphoma and non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL).
In 2013, about 731,277 people are living with lymphoma or are in remission (no sign of the disease). This number includes about 172,937 people with Hodgkin lymphoma and 558,340 people with NHL.
The Paul Foundation has been selected as an honoree of "the one hundred" in 2014. Created and sponsored by the Massachusetts General Hospital Cancer Center, the one hundred is an annual event celebrating individuals and organizations who are leading the fight against cancer.
