Following the loss of our twelve year old son Alex on 5th September 2011 to Non Hodgkin Lymphoma (NHL) we formed the Alex Hulme Foundation. The overall purpose of the Alex Hulme Foundation is to enhance research into Non Hodgkin Lymphoma in Children. The aim of the Alex Hulme Foundation is to make a difference for future sufferers of the disease. Through donated funds we will allow researchers to build on their knowledge into the disease. This in turn will provide clinicians with the ability to offer a more individualised and more flexible treatment plan to children diagnosed in future meaning a greatly improved long term prognosis.
