Dropping Blood Cancer Facts

When I was diagnosed with lymphoma, I had no idea what it entailed. How many kinds of lymphoma were there? What kind of cancer was lymphoma? Could I have gotten a screening test to prevent it? How many people get it? Many people feel this way when they are diagnosed with any blood cancer. September is all about dropping these facts and gaining knowledge about all blood cancers! Stay tuned, because after this video, we’re going to start talking the nitty gritty of treatment and symptoms and all that good stuff.

Please don’t forget to share a blood cancer fact with me in the comments below!

Editor’s Note: Statistics related to blood cancers are often changing and may be reported differently across a variety of sources. Myelodysplastic syndrome is also considered a type of blood cancer. According to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, over 1.3 million people in the United States are living with or are in remission from leukemia, lymphoma, or myeloma. 1

    I wish I had seen this when I was going through the roller coaster of getting diagnosed. Plus the doctors had so many different opinions and wouldn’t give us any info until they were absolutely sure. Kudos.

    Super true! Google and the LLS website were my best friends before I even saw my doctor for the first time. I think it’s so important for us to take these questions and curiosities into our own hands at times!

    Yes, Yes, and Yes, If we don’t put in the work no one else will. This is so unfortunate but sometimes we need that extra arsenal of knowledge to fight this fight.
