I was diagnosed with Follicular Lymphoma (Stage 3, Grade 1 &2) in January 2008. I have been writing this blog since then. After my diagnosis, I watched and waited for two years (to the day). I received six rounds of Rituxan in 2010, and I have not needed treatment since.
I like to call myself a Cancer Nerd – I am not a doctor or a cancer researcher, just a patient who wants to understand as much as I can about my disease, and write about what I find, from a patient’s perspective.
My blog represents my understanding and opinion only. It is not meant to be medical advice.
This blog is not intended to be a source of medical advice. I am not a medical doctor, scientist, or cancer researcher. I'm just a Follicular Lymphoma patient who wants to learn more about my condition and provide opinion and information so you might have a more informed conversation with your own doctor, who is the right person to get medical advice from.
