Finding Support During Treatment for Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma

Dealing with your feelings is often easier as you learn more about your disease and get support. Here are some ways you might get help. Ask questions and talk about your concerns with your health care team. Talk with friends and relatives. Get in touch with others who have had lymphoma. Meet with a social worker, psychologist or psychiatrist, or member of the clergy. Many people with lymphoma go to support groups where they can share what they have learned about lymphoma and its treatments. Here are some ways to find support:

  • Ask a nurse or social worker at your hospital or clinic for referrals. They may suggest a local or national group. Many of these offer emotional support, financial aid, transportation, home care, or other services.

  • Call the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society at 800-955-4572 for information about lymphoma.

  • Call the National Cancer Institute’s Cancer Information Service at 800-4-CANCER (800-422-6237) for information about resources.

  • Call the American Cancer Society at 800-ACS-2345 (800-227-2345). It is a nonprofit organization that helps people with cancer and their families.
