New York, NY (PRWEB) November 09, 2011
The Lymphoma Research Foundation (LRF) – the nation’s largest non-profit organization devoted exclusively to funding lymphoma research and to serving those touched by the disease – is pleased to announce the launch of four new websites for people affected by the following lymphoma subtypes: chronic lymphocytic leukemia (http://www.FocusOnCLL.org), follicular lymphoma (http://www.FocusOnFL.org), mantle cell lymphoma (http://www.FocusOnMCL.org), and peripheral t-cell lymphoma (http://www.FocusOnPTCL.org). The new websites provide visitors with disease-specific information, including diagnosis overview and treatment options. The sites also provide visitors access to the Foundation’s free patient and caregiver resources targeted to the specific lymphoma subtype.
With more than 67 subtypes, lymphoma is a complex diagnosis. Information and resources on particular subtypes of the disease enable patients and their loved ones to better understand their specific lymphoma, while providing them with the knowledge necessary to make informed decisions regarding their treatment.
“The Lymphoma Research Foundation has been a leader in focusing on and providing resources for the various subtypes of lymphoma; the launch of these new disease-specific websites emphasizes the Foundation’s commitment to the lymphoma community,” said Diane Blum, LRF Chief Executive Officer. “As personalized and targeted therapies increasingly become the standard of cancer care, the disease-specific information that these websites provide will prove invaluable for lymphoma patients and their loved ones.”
LRF’s new websites also offer visitors the opportunity to register for the Foundation’s semiannual electronic newsletters, which provide the latest news and treatment updates for those interested in chronic lymphocytic leukemia, follicular lymphoma, mantle cell lymphoma, or peripheral t-cell lymphoma.
“The Foundation provides a wide-variety of programs and resources focused on the subtypes of lymphoma, including disease-specific booklets, fact sheets, teleconferences and webcasts/podcasts; and so we are pleased to expand our services to include focused websites such as FocusOnCLL.org, FocusOnFL.org, FocusOnMCL.org, and FocusOnPTCL.org,” said Brian Tomlinson, LRF Chief Program Officer. “The sites will allow us to raise greater awareness of lymphoma and the breadth of resources LRF offers to members of the lymphoma community.”
