Thinking Outside of the Box   Leave a comment

Lately, there’s been a swell of news regarding creative ways to help patients with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. Some of these efforts are directed towards raising money for research; others assist a patient with personal medical expenses. Some endeavors are just about raising awareness and educating others. Regardless of your ultimate goal, such events can take on a wide range of forms these days. Below are a few examples to illustrate my point:

  • A benefit spaghetti supper will help NHL patient Chris Baumbauer pay for a second stem cell transplant in Houston, Texas. Click here to read more.
  • Olympic cyclist Chris Boardman will be donating a bicycle to to the most generous sponsor of the Wirral Bikeathon, which supports Leukaemia & Lymphoma research. Click here to read more.
  • Keith Meyers is writing and directing “Fairy Tale Confidential,” a satirical play spoofing many beloved fairy tale characters. He beat NHL nine years ago and a portion of the play’s proceeds will go to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. Click here to read more.

I find it truly refreshing to see so many people contributing to NHL patients utilizing this vast array of talents. Whatever your abilities are, they can be applied towards fighting the collective battle against NHL, even if it only means cooking spaghetti.
