On October 5, 1998 at 2:10 in the afternoon, Steve was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma, a chronic or slow-growing cancer of the immune system. Chemo therapy was available to 'knock-down' the cancer, but no cure exists. Steve has gone thru several cycles of chemo since then. He is currently battling 2 forms of lymphoma: the original chronic and a new aggressive form. In addition, all that chemo over the years has affected his lungs, heart, vision, and pancreas.
