This is the ‘omnibus’ edition of the blog entries I wrote about my experience with cancer. It started at Christmas in 2009, being rushed into hospital seriously ill with what turned out to be non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. Since then I’ve been in remission and relapsed twice with a different type of lymphoma. In just over six years I’ve been hospitalised on two occasions, had three different forms of chemotherapy, antibody treatment and an autologous stem cell transplant.
This book is intended to provide encouragement to others who experience non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, and to take away some of the fear of the unknown for those struggling with a new lymphoma diagnosis.
It takes you through the ups and downs of sickening treatment side-effects; the emotional rollercoaster of symptoms, tests, diagnosis and treatment options; and touches on the very personal way that cancer affected my young family. I’d like to think it’s pretty readable, and if it helps others in reading it as much as it helped me to write it, then I will be happy.
