Catching My Breath After A Lymphoma Diagnosis

My wife Evva of 17 years and I live a quiet, beautiful life in Sechelt, British Columbia. We enjoy walking our dog and manage the local women and men's clothing stores. Six years ago, however, our lives changed forever. I was diagnosed with follicular lymphoma, an incurable form of blood cancer.

How Lifestyle Changes Can Affect Breast Cancer

I have treated patients with breast cancer for more than 30 years as a medical oncologist.
