Hi KRSTE, my husband has been fighting lymphoma for the last two years. He went through ABVD, an autologous BMT and then an allogeneic (MUD) BMT. So far nothing has worked, but we're still hoping. I just wanted to say I know how hard it is. I gained 20 pounds in the last two years, and with this new year I'm trying to lose it. I hope it's a good year for all of us.

Welcome to the team.....I am sorry you and your husband are going through so much right now. My Dad has survived kidney and prostate cancer and is now battling bladder cancer. Hang in there...it is good that you came to this site and this team for support and inspiration--you are in the right place.

Dieting is not a piece of cake.

My husband has been on treatment for a year. Last time it only took 6 months for it to go in remission for 7 years. So, the stress among other things that the cancer has stole, has caused me to not care so much about how I look. As the new year starts I want a new start.
