Great post Lilan. This will definitely be an inspiration to members of this community . Thank you for sharing.

Since then I have been diagnosed with epilepsy which is under control now thank God as it means I can still drive & in 2010 I developed necrotising fascititis commonly known as the flesh eating disease but I am still alive to tell the tale & still work part time. My grandchildren keep me young

I too was diagnosed with non-Hodgkins lymphoma (large diffuse B cell). This was in early 2008. After going through 8 chemos, I too am a survivor. Extremely grateful to live in Canada where the treatment of this type of lymphoma is very effective but could be costly if we didn't have our healthcare program.

My husband diagnose with no. Hodgkin lymphoma .He will be 2nd chemo tomorrow.He is stage 4 now.Any advice please. Jan

Tell him to drink lots of water. Avoid large crowds, take his temperature twice a day, just be patient. It will all soon be over. He will get through this :) Best to you both.

I was diagnosed 4 years ago and are still in remission today so hopefully they will have a cure soon

I was diagnosed with Large cell B non-Hodgkin Lymphoma last June. I did six cycles of five days in the hospital. I completed last part of . I just had a cat scan and was told it was clear except a spot in the chest. So they took a biopsy and determined its Sarcadosis. A disease of the lungs being inflammation. Not nearly as serious as Cancer! So I'm Cancer Free!!!

My advice would be to watch the digestive system closely. I had terrible bouts with constipation! Chemo and other meds really play into it! And stay hydrated! Water water water! And keep up a positive attitude!
