It's a small world
In 2010, approximately 30,000 women were diagnosed with Non Hodgkin's Lymphoma in the United States. I just found out a fellow classmate has been diagnosed with DLBC NHL. 25 years ago, we were 2 of 121 students in our graduating class. 2 of 59 girls in the Class of 1986. Seems pretty suspicious. Once again, I'm glad I registered for the Cancer Prevention Study last June at our local relay for life event. There really has to be something environmental causing the increase numbers of Lymphoma in young women.
