Stories from lymphoma patients
Helping more people survive cancer is the aim of everything we do. Read stories from people who have been affected by lymphoma, and how research has made a difference to them.
"My cancer was treatable because of research"
Rajvinder (left) from Wolverhampton was diagnosed with Hodgkin lymphoma in January 2014. “When the doctor told me it was a blood cancer, I remember sobbing a little. After six months of chemotherapy and a month of radiotherapy I was told that I was clear and that the cancer wasn't growing anymore. My cancer was treatable because of the advances in research. But not everyone has the options I had.”
Trialling a new immunotherapy
Laine from Hampshire was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin lymphoma in 2011. He took part in a trial testing a new immunotherapy drug. “They explained this immunotherapy to me as a treatment that focusses directly on cancer cells. I imagined it like a sniper shot taking the cancer cells out! What research is doing to help people like me is incredible.”
