A portion of the proceeds benefits Lymphoma charities.
How We Got Started?
The Lymphoma Shop was established in February 2007 by a pair of sisters, one who survived two battles of Hodgkin's Lymphoma and the other who saved her life by donating her stem cells for a rare life-saving stem cell transplant to help her sister. They open their shop to help raise awareness for all Lymphomas. Through their Lymphoma awareness shirts, apparel and merchandise, they hope to promote awareness while donating a portion of the proceeds to Lymphoma cancer charities.
For two years, we as a family witnessed what our sister endured battling an advanced form of Hodgkin's Lymphoma. The unexpected journey started in the spring of 2005 when our sister was diagnosed with this rare but deemed curable cancer during a routine check-up for flu-like symptoms. After her diagnosis, many in the medical field as well as cancer patients commented that Hodgkin's Lymphoma was the "good" cancer to get if you had to choose a cancer.
Unfortunately, it was not the "good cancer" and the road to remission was a bumpy one. It took a rare syngeneic stem cell transplant and almost two years of back-to-back high dose chemotherapy treatment and radiation therapy to bring our sister into remission status. As a family, we experienced this two-year challenging journey right along our sister's side. This sobering experience inspired us to do something tangible in our sister's honor to help bring worldwide awareness to all Lymphomas, including Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma and Hodgkin's Lymphoma, also known as Hodgkin's Disease.
Today, our sister is in remission and we are grateful to God that she has been given a second opportunity to fulfill her hopes and dreams -- cancer free. Many have asked how our sister got through two years of back-to-back cancer treatment for aggressive Hodgkin's Lymphoma, her answer is through hope, faith and family.
