Frequently Asked Questions


What is Lighthouse?

Lighthouse provides you with constant support during your CALQUENCE® (acalabrutinib) treatment with help from our medically trained Advocates. Lighthouse encourages you to monitor your overall experience.

What are the benefits of joining Lighthouse?

With Lighthouse, you’ll get:

  • Support from Lighthouse Advocates, who are medically trained professionals, available at any time of day and any day of the week, even in the middle of the night
  • Your own assigned personal Advocate. So you’ll talk to the same person regularly to help track and monitor your experience, including any signs of side effects that may come up

How often can I speak to my Lighthouse Advocate?

That all depends on you. You can set up weekly phone calls, or we can talk more or less frequently —whatever works for you. And remember, you can always call an Advocate 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Does Lighthouse have information about mantle cell lymphoma (MCL) or CALQUENCE?

To learn more about your treatment plan, your best resource is your doctor.

Can I participate in Lighthouse without having regular phone calls?

Yes. The program does not require regular calls.

Will I only work with one Lighthouse Advocate?

For your regularly scheduled calls, you’ll always work with your assigned Lighthouse Advocate, so he or she will know any medical history you’ve shared, give you personalized attention, and answer your questions. If you call at another time, you may talk to another one of our trained Advocates.

Why is it so important to take CALQUENCE as prescribed?

By regularly taking your medicine as prescribed, you have the best chance for treatment success. That also means you will always have the proper amount of medicine in your body.

Why is monitoring signs of side effects important?

It is important to always discuss any side effect with your HCP. Sometimes there’s a chance that a small side effect can become something serious. If a side effect is identified early, it may be managed before becoming more serious and possibly causing treatment to be stopped.
