Hodgkin's Lymphoma Awareness Month Matters

September brings national awareness for all Lymphomas, including Hodgkin's Lymphoma aka Hodgkin's Disease, a rare type of Lymphoma originating from a type of white blood cells called lymphocytes. It was named after British pathologist Thomas Hodgkin in 1832.

Hodgkin's Lymphoma is not a well-known cancer as is Breast Cancer. In order to get Hodgkin's Lymphoma noticed, it is important to promote and advocate it. Wearing a violet awareness ribbon is more than wearing an ordinary color. It's a mission, a statement and awareness for an important cause that affects thousands of men, women and children each year. When you wear a violet ribbon inspired design, you help put Hodgkin's Lymphoma in the forefront and you stand up to it by advocating, supporting and fighting for a cure. As a two time survivor of Hodgkin's Lymphoma, I personally know Hodgkin's Lymphoma awareness matters.
On that note, I am proud to announce our collection of violet ribbon inspired t-shirts and gifts to commemorate the importance of raising awareness for this rare cancer brought to you by our shops HopeDreamsDesigns.Com and our sister shop CancerApparelGifts.Com. Both shops have an extensive collection of Hodgkin's Lymphoma merchandise and we proudly donate to Lymphoma research.
