Lymphomathon 2011

On October 22nd, our family will walk in the Lymphoma Research Foundation’s annual 5K “Lymphomathon” to raise money for the organization that has been an important part of our lives over the last 6 years.  It is amazing to think that this spring will bring the 5 year anniversary of my ongoing remission.  Each year we talk and think about lymphoma a little less, but of course there is so much work that still needs to be done.  Tens of thousands of people are diagnosed with lymphoma every year and many still die from the disease, including friends of ours.

I am writing to ask those of you who live in or near Philadelphia to consider joining our team, BaldMike, for the walk on October 22nd.  Bust out your sneakers, double strollers, rocket-powered roller skates, whatever, and make your way to the beautiful Norristown Farm Park. We have had friends walk with us in years past and it makes the day even more special.

    I was diagnosed with Mantle Cell last March and since then have been on watch and wait, which I was hoping to remain om for some time. Unfortunately the it’s spread, not much but in areas which are causing my doctors some concern. So I found out today it looks like I’m going to start my treatment in the very near future.
    You are one of the few people I’ve been able to find who’s been through this treatment and I just want to say, thank you from the bottom of my heart for such a positive and informative blog.
    Like you I have young children and am struggling with how to break this news to them, but you site has been an inspiration as I work my way through it. May I wish you and your family a Happy New Year and many more to come fro all of you,
    Kind Regards

    • Hi Mick,

      Hang in there. The treatment is rough, but you are young and you’ll do ok.

      Feel free to reach out if you just feel like emailing with someone who has survived this thing.

      Good health to you and your family.

      Best,
      Michael
