Raising Awareness for Non Hodgkin Lymphoma

By Michele Jarvis October 11, 2019

Today the Pioneers will be wearing lime green to raise awareness for Non Hodgkin Lymphoma. Non Hodgkin lymphoma is the 7th most common cause of cancer-related deaths in the United States. The disease attacks the lymphocytes (a type of white blood cell) which then multiply uncontrollably and attack other healthy white blood cells, compromising the immune system. Early detection and treatment are crucial to the continued fight against this devastating disease. We at Pioneer have a special connection to this cancer, as one of our Senior leaders, Kenny Atkins, is a two-time survivor of the disease. His fight and victory, have inspired the Pioneers to raise the public awareness. For more information on how you can help in this fight, please visit lymphoma.org. 💚💜
