I was diagnosed with a rare type of non-Hodgkin lymphoma at the age of 23. Needless to say, it was a surreal experience.

I’m an LLSC First Connection Peer Support volunteer where I share my journey and perhaps bring some hope to others affected by a blood cancer. If nothing else, I’m there to listen.

It's more than a year and half since my allograft. I’ve now been in complete remission for one year. I’m doing really well, and I’m in great shape. I’m enjoying life to the fullest.

My wife and I both enrolled as contacts for the First Connection peer support program, me as a survivor and Brenda as a caregiver. It was very rewarding to be able to assist another survivor in various ways.
