Ward 44 celebrates Lymphoma month

September is Lymphoma month and this Sunday 15 September is World Lymphoma Awareness Day.  Lymphoma is cancer of the lymphatic system and every year more than 5,000 Australians are diagnosed with it.

To help raise awareness of Lymphoma the nurses on ward 44 at Monash Medical Centre Clayton wore lime today and hosted a ‘Lymphoma in the Limelight’ afternoon tea to  help to fund Lymphoma Care Nurses across Australia.

The team were joined by very special guest Sharon Millman, Lymphoma Australia’s CEO “Lymphoma Australia would like to say a huge thank you to the team on ward 44 at Monash hospital for turning Lime for Lymphoma to acknowledge World Lymphoma Awareness Day” said Sharon.

The team are now in an online competition against other Australian Hospitals to be crowned the most supportive and creative team to host a ‘Lymphoma in the Limelight’ afternoon tea.
