I started my lymphoma blog in 2012 when I was diagnosed with Double Hit Non-Hodgkin lymphoma.
I underwent A LOT of chemo, had remissions, relapses, more chemo, total body irradiation (TBI) and eventually a donor stem cell transplant.
I eventually ended treatment in May 2013 and in September 2015 I got my all-clear from a rare and aggressive type of cancer. I documented this period and the months after in a very candid and honest blog for which I won an award for.
The blog was originally only for family and friends as an update but ended up being followed by fellow patients, members of the medical profession and also promoted by my friends in Metallica (yes the rock band), the F1 community and Olympic swimmer Ian Thorpe!
You can read about my experience during and after my illness here:
It's very honest and can be quite difficult to read it parts, but it is a true reflection of my experience.
