The International day of struggle with lymphoma was celebrated in Sofia
Patients and doctors celebrated the International day of struggle with lymphoma in the center of Sofia today.
The event ended with the patients and doctors lining up to form the letter “Y” – the symbol of the campaign. This year’s motto of the campaign is “Catch the future”.
The celebration of the International day of struggle with lymphoma took place in front of the hotel ‘Radisson”. The actress Maria Kavardjikova hosted the event. The patients talked about their illness with dr. Atanas Stanchev, vice-chairman of the Bulgarian union of lymphoma patients and docent Georgi Mihailov – hematology consultant.
Bulgaria doesn’t have a well-established tradition of celebrating the International day of struggle with lymphoma. It was celebrated for the first time in 2006, but the organizers are ambitious to turn it into an annual, informative event.
