In 2016 I was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin’s follicular lymphoma.  After six rounds of treatments and  spinal chemo I was in remission. In June 2018 I noticed a lump next to my ear. After several tests and biopsies the tumor was removed. It was discovered that this tumor was 80% my follicular lymphoma and 20% B cell lymphoma. The B cell is an aggressive cancer. I will have to endure 24 hr harsher chemo from last time. I  have to be in the hospital for three days each round, a bone marrow transfusion and a month stay in the Roswell hospital to replace my bone marrow and build up my immune system.  This approach is our best bet to make sure the lymphoma stays away and I am in remission once again!!!
