LOS ANGELESThe Lymphoma Research Foundation of America (LRFA) and the
New York-based Cure For Lymphoma Foundation (CFL) have merged to become the
Lymphoma Research Foundation (LRF), the nation’s only organization
dedicated solely to funding lymphoma research and providing information,
education, and support to all those touched by the disease.
By reducing duplicative administrative and program costs, the new
foundation expects to be able to enhance its services to patients,
caregivers, and health care professionals.
LRFA and CFL have a collective 17 years of experience and have funded
more than $7 million in lymphoma research. The new LRF will continue to fund
basic, translational, and clinical research projects at the fellow and
junior faculty levels.
The new foundation has offices in Los Angeles, focusing on patient
services and educational and support programs, and New York, focusing on
research grants, public policy and advocacy, finance and development, and
professional education. More information is available online at www.lymphoma.org.
