August 16th Medical Update- in an ironic turn of events, my father was diagnosed yesterday with Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma. We spent the majority of the day at Roswell Park Cancer Institute, meeting with doctors, discussing treatment options and having more tests done. He will be starting chemotherapy soon.
I never dreamed that cancer could hit so close to home… or that my family would be ones to seek help from the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I just thought that I would be helping other people by my participation in Team In Training.
Now, more than ever, do I understand the importance of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I feel a lot better knowing that there is an organization like the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society whose mission is to find a cure and help patients and families face cancer.
