Michael De-Graft Memorial Foundation (MDMF), a Christian organisation, spreading the message of Christ’s love and redemptive power across the nation, is embarking on an exercise to create public awareness on the existence of Hodgkin’s Lymphoma Cancer.

MDMF provides timely interventions to cancer patients and connects patients to critical support aimed at improving survival rates and securing the future of many young people in Ghana.

Hodgkin’s lymphoma is a type of cancer that affects the lymphatic system, which is part of the body’s germ-fighting immune system. In Hodgkin’s lymphoma, white blood cells called lymphocytes grow out of control, causing swollen lymph nodes and growths throughout the body. 

Signs and symptoms of Hodgkin’s lymphoma may include: painless swelling of lymph nodes in the neck of a person, armpits or groin persistent fatigue, fever, night sweats, losing weight without trying, severe itching, pain in the lymph nodes after drinking alcohol, among other symptoms.

However, MDMF exists to create awareness about Hodgkin Lymphoma, educate the public on prevention and treatment methods, and support young people battling the disease.
