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. This particular website is for the support of Tamara DeRidder as she fights Follicular Lymphoma. This non-Hogskin's Lymphoma cannot be cured - only managed. Although it was found at stage 3 the oncologist Dr. Luftkin found that it is 'slow growing' so it is grade 3A. We are treating the cancer aggressively as if it were fast-growing by using a chemo cocktail of Bendamustine + Rituximab. There will be a total of 6-rounds at 28 days apart for this treatment. Thank you for visiting.
