When my doctor called with the biopsy results it was a shock.I knew it was possible but hearing the words that I had lymphoma still stunned me.I start treatment Feb.11,2014 and am nervous.I have a lot of support from family and friends but still have these feelings of being alone.I think I am trying so hard to be positive in front of everyone that I haven’t let it truly sink in that at least for a while my life will be different.I am determined to beat this and will have to face whatever comes.

  3. I am a 58 year-old man who was diagnosed with multiple myeloma a little over 1 1/2 years ago. Since then I have received chemo, radiation, multiple bone marrow aspirations and two stem cell transplants. Now I have the return of light chains as well as monoclonal IgG and IgM protein spikes. To add to my disease process I have had a significantly complicated course of treatment. I don’t know if anyone else has any similar experiences, but I would enjoy talking with them about things.
    Sincerely, Greg

    • From the moment I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer I had an outrageously much needed support system. So much of my support was surprising to me and I am most thankful them all. When I was able to start doing for myself again and found that a friend had gotten a diagnosis of cancer and was starting chemo I stepped up offering to take her to her first chemo session as one did this for me. I knew she was as scared as I was for my first session. From that point on I made sure anytime she was having her infusion I would arrive early for my infusion and stopped by and chatted with her and her husband being honest about any questions she would ask about side effect or whatever she needed to know. I felt that doing this is the very least I could do to give back for all the support I got.
