    Diagnosed

    Oh No

    After an open chest lung biopsy, I was diagnosed with a low-grade B-cell NH lymphoma.

    what type of treatment plan to undergo

    Decision Point

    My doctor gave me the option for rituxan or a more aggressive treatment of chemo. I chose rituxan which has been very effective in shrinking the tumors.

    Celebration

    I'm in partial remission and have had to go back for treatment once since I was last in treatment (span of 2 and 1/2 years).
