As a doctor in a large oncology center, I have the opportunity of meeting thousands of individuals newly diagnosed with lymphoma every year. I meet both children and elderly patients suffering from the same disease, their lives affected in different ways.
When my uncle was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin lymphoma in 2005, I came face-to-face with the disease as a family member. I started an extensive research on the topic, and realized how difficult it is for a patient to understand a disease as complex and varied as lymphoma.
I hope to communicate with the thousands of individuals who are newly diagnosed or living with the disease, and their family members to be able to address the unique issues that are part of their existence.
