Lymphoma is the most common blood cancer in the United States with approximately 75,000 new cases diagnosed every year. Doctors categorize most lymphomas as either Hodgkin’s or Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma—and Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma—or NHL is by far the most common. In fact, according to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society Non-Hodgkin lymphoma is the most common cancer of the lymphatic system. And since the early 1970’s, incidence rates for NHL have nearly doubled. But Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma is not a single disease. Rather it is a group of several closely related cancers broadly divided into two categories: B-cell Lymphoma & T-cell Lymphoma.
In this program we take viewers inside the hospital to the medical practices of two acclaimed researchers and clinicians who are fighting the NHL battle with their patients. We hear how treatments for these diseases have changed recently—and listen as two patients detail their struggles— and their successes — as they work to gain victory over these diseases. (2905)
