“They Saved My Life!”

I was desperate. I had stage 4-BE nonhodgkin lymphoma. More swollen lymph nodes appearing every day. The cancer had metastasized to my liver. There was a mass in my abdomen, shutting down one kidney and blocking my bowel. It was so big my doctor called it the Rock of Gibraltar. Another tumor was pressing on my lungs.

The doctor told me "Better get your affairs in order. You have about two months to live."

I sat there . . . crying.


Thankfully, I found the Lymphoma Foundation of America. Here's what they did:

  • helped me get a second opinion at Johns Hopkins in Baltimore
  • connected me with experts at Dana-Farber, MD Anderson, and Stanford
  • referred me to the top lymphoma pathologist at the National Institutes of Health who evaluated my biopsy slides
  • identified the National Cancer Institute clinical trial where I received experimental chemotherapy
  • helped me locate a support group to join
  • gave me encouragement when I wanted to explore complementary therapies like acupuncture and Chinese herbs
  • educated me about the link between chemical pesticides and lymphoma (I worked in a flower and garden center)

I'm alive and well today. Lymphoma Foundation of America SAVED MY LIFE.

Miracles can happen! I'm one of them.
