I have been diagnosed with primary mediastinal B-cell lymphoma. That's a complicated way to say that one of my immune system cells began dividing uncontrollably and formed massive tumors in my chest. Cancer at 29...not what I was expecting... If you'd like to follow my progress fighting this disease, you can read about my experiences at www.mylymphomalog.blogspot.com. Thank you for your support!
