Bijon's Journey with Lymphoma

On March 7th, Bijon was diagnosed with T-Cell Lymphoblastic Lymphoma which is an aggressive, fast growing cancer. He is undergoing aggressive chemo in Las Vegas. We are sharing his fight and journey with family and friends, to keep everyone updated and provide the most amount of support to Bijon.

It started the prior Saturday when Bijon felt like he couldn't catch his breath walking from his class to his dorm at UNR. He thought maybe it was an upper respiratory infection or maybe his asthma was flared up. After talking with some friends, he decided to go up to the ER at Saint Mary's Hospital. They said it was his asthma, gave him a breathing treatment and sent him home. That following Monday he called our mom and explained his symptoms. She automatically thought it could be pneumonia and told him he needed to go back to the ER. After waiting for hours, they finally did a chest x-ray where the softball size mass was discovered behind his sternum. That's when this whole journey started...

This journey is just beginning for Bijon and our family.  Any contributions you make will go towards helping our family during this tough time and to help my mom be closer to Bijon.
