Lighting it red for lymphoma research

September is Blood Cancer Awareness Month, and the Lymphoma Research Foundation needs your help to spread the word – and raise a few dollars.

In the “a day late and a dollar short” department, we forgot to write about the Lymphoma Research Foundation’s Light it Red event this past Tuesday, Sept. 15, in our Waggings items. Participating businesses and landmarks were lit red to mark World Lymphoma Awareness Day in what is National Blood Cancer Awareness Month.

However, the month isn’t over and the need for research and the public’s help presses on. Today, there are more than one million people in the United States living with, or in remission from, lymphoma — the most common type of blood cancer. Every five minutes, someone is diagnosed with this disease.

It’s never too late to fundraise or get involved, perhaps with socially distanced events of your own?
