To help members of the lymphoma community better understand their specific type so that they can make informed decisions regarding their treatment options, the Lymphoma Research Foundation developed a first-if-its-kind mobile app, Focus On Lymphoma.

It focused on improving the dialogue and exchange of information between the patient and their physician, supporting better patient outcomes.

For its re-launch in 2014, the Foundation engaged its strategic partners, including lymphoma experts, nursing professionals and influencers in the lymphoma realm to assist in educating the lymphoma community about Focus On Lymphoma and its new cutting-edge features. The app has an average rating of 4.5 out of 5 stars on the Apple App Store and has a total of over 11,000 downloads. Three thousand monthly active users have viewed over 200,000 pages of lymphoma content.
