^Mom and Dad on their 36th anniversary last year!
After nine methotrexate injections directly into each eye, Mom's lymphoma seemed to be responding well to treatment and doctors were optimistic for a full recovery.
Late in November, however, she started experiencing flu-like symptoms and neck soreness eventually leading to a swollen lymph node. A biopsy in January confirmed her medical team's suspicions, leading to a Diffuse Large B-Cell Lymphoma (DLBCL) diagnosis. Follow-up testing also revealed that the lymphoma has spread to Mom's brain.
DLBCL is the most common type of lymphoma in adults, and although often very treatable, there is a lot that we do not know and there is still a long road ahead of chemotherapy. She has completed one cycle of inpatient chemotherapy and has several months of continuing treatment.
This fund is to support Mom's medical expenses and to provide meals and housekeeping services throughout her chemo battle and recovery. Thank you so much for your generosity and for your prayers.
