ide patients, oncologists and other healthcare professionals with the kind of information usually only gleaned in big medical conferences," said Liz Hart McMillan, a five-year lymphoma survivor and co-founder of the "Our MCL Family" Facebook group which provides education and support to MCL survivors and caregivers.

The Mantle Cell Lymphoma Symposium will be streamed live from the MCL Facebook group and JTCancerCenter.org. Survivors, caregivers and healthcare professionals from around the world will have the opportunity to watch the event and ask questions in real time using the MCL Facebook group chat feature.

"We're excited to be the first Facebook group to use Livestreaming for patient education and to build awareness of clinical trials of novel therapies, which often offer the very best treatment options for this and other rare cancers," said Ms. McMillan.

Topics to be discussed at the Mantle Cell Lymphoma Symposium include the latest treatment options for new and relapsed MCL, novel and emerging therapies in managing MCL, the role of stem cell transplantation, the emerging role of maintenance therapies and optimizing MCL survivorship through scientifically backed nutrition, exercise and integrative therapies. The event includes complimentary breakfast and lunch.

The international panel of experts will update patients and healthcare professionals on the most recent advances in treatment and research. Speakers and their topics include:

  • Andre Goy, M.D., M.S. Chairman and Director, Chief of Lymphoma, the John Theurer Cancer Center: Working Toward Cure and Less Toxic Treatment: Emerging and Novel Therapies for MCL
  • Elias Campo, M.D, Ph.D. Chief, Hematopathology Unit and Clinical Director, Center for Biomedical Diagnosis, Hospital Clinic, University of Barcelona: Understanding the Biology and Prognostic Markers of MCL
  • Jorge E. Romaguera, M.D. Deputy Chairman, Division of Cancer Medicine, Lymphoma/Myeloma
