  • The Lymphoma Research Foundation (LRF) is a voluntary health organization devoted to funding lymphoma research and providing patients and health care professionals with critical information on the disease. LRF’s support programs include the Lymphoma Support Network, Helpline and Clinical Trials Information Service, Patient Aid and Healthcare Provider Grant Programs, and Stories of Hope. The Lymphoma Support Network is a national, one-to-one peer support program that matches lymphoma patients or caregivers with volunteers who have had similar lymphoma-related experiences. Trained staff members are available to answer questions, offer individual support, and search for clinical trials on the Lymphoma Helpline and Clinical Trials Information Service. The Patient Aid Grant program provides funds for “quality of life” expenses, including travel and transportation, temporary lodging, childcare, home care, cosmetic aids, medical devices, and hygiene products. In addition, LRF offers a Healthcare Provider Grant to reimburse health care providers for patients’ hospital or physician bills that insurance will not pay. Stories of Hope from people with lymphoma and their loved ones are featured on the LRF Web site. LRF also offers informational webcasts and podcasts on specific types of lymphoma, treatment options, and patient support topics.
