    Hello,
    Has your doc(s) said anything about CAR-T cell therapy? If not, might ask about it. I got it after two failed Chemo treatments as a third line treatment, but I hear it has been advanced to a second line treatment now. I got it back in June 2019 for Stage 4 DHL, an aggressive subtype of NHL, and been in remission over a year. I’m coming up on two year scan in June. They don’t offer this at all treatment centers. I had to go to KU in Kansas City as they were setup to administer it there.
    Best Regards,
    Steve H.

    Hello,
    Has your doc(s) ever said anything about CAR-T treatment. I was stage 4 with Large B cell ‘Double Hit’ Lymphoma, and it put me into remission over a year ago. I’m coming up on 2 year scan in June. No problems yet. I read they have use it on your cancer. They don’t do it at all treatment centers. I got mine at KU in Kansas City.
    Best Regards, Steve H.

    Hello, I’m a DHL survivor (double hit Lymphoma), also large B cell which is really bad. Chemo was useless against my type. I was diagnosed at stage IV, but I received the newer CAR-T immunotherapy and 30 days later all the tumors were almost gone, by the next PET scan all that was left was scar tissue where the cancer had been. This treatment uses your bodies own immune system that fights off bacteria and virus to kill the cancer. They harvest your own disease fighting T-Cells out of your blood, and send them off to have the genetic code added to allow them to kill our Type of cancer. They put them back in you and they go to work. I’ve had a great result, so far. Still clear after over a year. I had to fail two standard chemo treatments before I could get CAR-T, but I was told after my treatment by my CAR-T specialist that CAR-T has now been approved as a second line treatment. This is fairly new and is not offered as treatment at all cancer treatment centers, so you need to Google it To find out the nearest facility that offers it. I received mine at KU (Kansas University Cancer Center) in Kansas City, God bless, & Best Regards, Steven D. Homan, Sedalia, MO.

    Hello, I’m Steve over near Sedalia, Mo. i was diagnosed with a form of Large B Cell Lymphoma, stage 4, back in Feb. of last year. I suggest you read up on your options, and think about going to a teaching hospital that deals with this type of cancer, as I believe you will get the best care there. They are up on the latest treatments. I had a form of large B cell called ‘Double Hit’, in short it was a very aggressive cancer that used to have a poor prognosis, but I got the new CAR-T immune therapy, after two failed chemo treatments, and so far it has wiped it out. I will have a 1 year scan coming up June 5th to see, but I haven’t had any more issues, so I’m hoping for a got scan. I used KU and haven’t regretted it. This can be beaten, so don’t let it get you down, and if you have any questions, I would be glad to give you more details on how my treatment went and what to expect. Best Regards, Steve H.
