I was recently diagnosed with a non typical Hodgkins lymphoma called NLPH. This was a relapse of the same cancer I had 13 years ago. We were in SD at the time working with Olive Branch Missions in Cherry Creek, and we started treatment out there. I had 3 rounds of chemotherapy in SD, which was enough to put it very close to what they would call remission. They recommended a bone marrow transplant as a precaution against any further relapse in the future. We decided to move back to PA to get this done because of the magnitude of this procedure. This will be our journey for the next few months.
We were at the doctor again today for a follow-up CT scan and doctor visit. We got some good news, the lymph node they were concerned about has continued to shrink since the last time. The doctor was very happy to see that and we were very relieved to see that as well. He does want to continue to monitor it to see if anything will change further, but everything looks to be going in the right direction. Thank you all again for your support and prayers for our family! -Mike
