New Resource Available for People With Lymphoma
Date:8/19/2007

FAIRFAX, Va., Aug. 2 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The American Society for Therapeutic Radiology and Oncology has published the brochure Radiation Therapy for Lymphoma, a short treatment guide to assist people coping with Hodgkin's and non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. The brochure outlines the major differences between the diseases, explains radiation therapy's role in treatment and what patients can expect before, during and after radiation therapy.

"A cancer diagnosis can be very frightening and confusing for patients and their families, especially with such a diverse disease like lymphoma," said Thomas Eichler, M.D., Chair of ASTRO's Communications Committee and a radiation oncologist at the Thomas Johns Cancer Center in Richmond, Va. "It is our hope that this brochure will guide patients with lymphoma through the various treatment options available to them, including the role of radiation therapy, in order to make an informed decision on their care."

This four-color brochure is the newest component in ASTRO's award-winning public awareness campaign that consists of 17 brochures in English and Spanish. Brochures can be downloaded for free on RTanswers.org and hard copies can be purchased by visiting http://www.astro.org/shop/.

For a free sample copy of the brochure, e-mail communications@astro.org.

ASTRO is the largest radiation oncology society in the world, with 9,000 members who specialize in treating patients with radiation therapies. As the leading organization in radiation oncology, biology and physics, the Society is dedicated to improving patient care through education, clinical practice, advancement of science and advocacy.
