1995 – Initial Diagnosis

1995—Initial diagnosis

I was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s, low-grade, stage III-B Follicular lymphoma. My entire lymphatic system was involved with the cancer being predominate on my “right” side.

I was given 8 cycles of CHOP chemotherapy over approximately nine months and was blessed to achieve remission.

CHOP Chemotherapy:

  1. C: Cytoxan® (cyclophosphamide)
  2. H: Adriamycin® (hydroxy doxorubicin)
  3. O: Oncovin® (vincristine)
  4. P: Deltasone® (prednisone)
