The Stichting Lymph & Co together with Zeldzame Ziekten Fonds ( (Foundations raising money for lymphoma and rare diseases respectively) are the two foundations we want to support this year.

For many forms of cancer there is already much awareness and also means for treatment. Regarding lymphoma, unfortunately, this is not the case. The Lymph&Co Fund wants to improve this situation by supporting renowned researchers who are looking for ways to better treat this disease. Lymph&Co is part of the AMC Foundation. See also: Website lymph & Co, (select language English)

About 6 percent of the population has to do with a rare disease. Especially children are dealing with rare diseases. Families where these children are part will not be helped, while the government and various funds do have money available for known diseases. The Rare Diseases Fund finds this unacceptable. That is why they raise money for scientific research and to create awareness. See also: ZZF-website  (in Dutch)
