Welcome! My name is Daryl.
In 1995, I was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. Since then I have also experienced multiple relapses. And, while being treated for my third relapse, I also learned about Epilepsy.
In my book Once Was Not Enough I chronicled my story from my initial diagnosis up through the beginning of my third relapse. This website has been created to pick up The Rest of My Story from 2006 through today.
Current Status: In Treatment (See Diary)
My Goal for this Website
Only people who have experienced something in common can truly understand the details of the situation. Since I was diagnosed with cancer, I have learned that by sharing my story with other people, I have been able to help them. This includes people who are in the process of being diagnosed, facing or undergoing treatment regimens, and even caregivers that have been thrown in the midst of this scary ordeal.
Based upon that positive feedback my goal for sharing my life’s story (in my book and on this website) is to help a lot of people. Perhaps the information here will help you or someone you care about. Don’t ever forget — You are the most important person in the world!
Thank you for allowing me to share my story with you!
Navigating “The Rest of My Story”
Under “About” on this website I have provided basic information that begins with my initial diagnosis in 1995, and each respective relapse of the cancer. In addition, under “Journals” you can select the year then the month (beginning with 2006) where I have provided my actual detailed journal entries. These entries were made during the respective times that I underwent diagnostic testing and treatment regimens.
I have also provided my “Dairy” where I will expand my original journal entries to share my new experiences as I continue my life’s journey as a long-term cancer survivor. This will give you an opportunity to follow my thoughts and concerns, new diagnostic testing, and new treatment regimens as they play out.
