In a perfect world I would have started this site several weeks ago. But of course you all know that we don’t live in a perfect world and the past few weeks have proven to be hectic and overwhelming. Patrick was diagnosed with Diffuse Large B cell Lymphoma in August 2017 and started chemotherapy. The first line chemo was not effective and Patrick started the process of determining whether or not he would be a candidate for a stem cell transplant- an arduous and complex procedure at best- but his only hope for a cure. On March 20th we learned that Patrick is a candidate for a stem cell transplant. Within a week and a half we made arrangements for treatment at Seattle Cancer Care Alliance where Patrick is currently in the midst of the stem cell transplant process.
