Between the years 2009-2010 I was diagnosed with lymph node in left side of the neck and I was treated under radiation for 2 weeks. In 2013 they found again some case and gone after operation in same day. (Upper thigh, right-side). In November 2015 a lymph node come back again in my right side of the neck and the doctor told me its non-Hodgkin Lymphoma (stage 2-b) and must go on chemotherapy for 6 cycles and I started last May. The lymph node is done during my 2nd -3rd chemo and we continue until 5th cycle but I surprised when the team said the 6th cycle will no longer to continue because the lymphoma became aggressive and they suggest to on blood and a marrow stem cell transplant by using my own blood, but their the observation my blood counts are not developed or not responding. So they suggest again to get a blood donor form my siblings but sad to hear them that my lymphoma become aggressive grew to stage 4 and incurable and they told me what is my plan or wish that I want. They advised me as soon as possible no latter then January 2017. I was shocked about the bad news. So my wish is to visit first all my family and friends in the Philippines before the time comes. But my faith I know that there’s a miracle and I will cure and I will more years and longer in the name of the Lord Jesus. Amen!
