I just read an article about this ....

ouch ...this is sad news.



Lymphoma - Fast Facts*
 •Lymphoma affects the lymphatic system, the network of vessels and nodes that carry infection-fighting white blood cells, called lymphocytes, throughout the body. It ranks as the most common blood cancer and third most common childhood cancer.
•Lymphomas are generally classified as Hodgkin's lymphomas (formerly known as Hodgkin's disease) or non-Hodgkin's lymphomas. In both types of cancer, the lymphatic cells begin to grow abnormally, producing lymph nodes that are larger than normal.
•Hodgkin's lymphoma follows a more predictable pattern than non-Hodgkin's lymphoma and often has a more limited spread. Non-Hodgkin's lymphomas are more likely to involve many different areas of the body.
•Some lymphomas are highly curable (e.g. Hodgkin's lymphoma, diffuse large B-cell lymphoma) with standard chemotherapy and antibody treatments, which can be given without a hospital stay and are only minimally toxic. Other types of lymphomas can be managed effectively for many years with mild treatments but tend to recur repeatedly with traditional therapies

I've known a number of people who have had very positive results in treating leukemia and lymphoma

hopefully they've caught it early enough to beat it back before it gets worse.
