Welcome to our CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement. Thank you for visiting. Bob was diagnosed with a rare and aggressive form of Cutaneous T Cell Lymphoma in May 2018. He is being followed by Dana Farber Cancer Institute in Boston. He has received local radiation therapy to the site of his cancer, and has undergone an aggressive course of extremely high dosage chemotherapy (CHEOP.) He will be having about three weeks of daily full body radiation therapy beginning in late November at Lahey Clinic in Burlington. We are anticipating him to be admitted to the transplantation unit of Dana Farber/Brigham in early January for about two weeks for a stem cell transplant. He will be in isolation at home for about 100 days following the transplant. His donor is a kind and generous 35 year old man from Germany who has been informed that he is a match. We might never know his name.
