- Hello friends!
- I am sorry that I have been so absent from the list
recently. I haven't felt
- very good lately.
- Folks, I have some bad news. I had a biopsy of my chest wall
last week and a
- mass that I have there has been diagnosed as being
Non-Hodgkins lymphoma. I
- have relapsed again. I am seventeen months post allogenaic
transplant (at the
- Hutch). I had an autologous transplant a year earlier in
- Today the doctors at the Hutch in Seattle are going to
consider my case and will
- discuss whether or not they may be able to help me. I really
hope that they
- have a protocol for me or some ideas for me. I WANT TO
FIGHT!! I WANT TO LIVE!!
- I want to get back into remission because I believe that
exciting new therapies
- are just around the corner and I want to live long enough
that I can take
- advantage of them!
- QUESTION: I am very interested in doing the Buffy-Coat
procedure but since I may
- already have some GVHD (we did a skin biopsy yesterday) -
Buffy-Coat may not be
- possible. Has anyone out there ever had the Buffy-Coat
procedure even though
- they had GVHD?
- QUESTION: I am very interested in MONO-CLONAL ANTIBODIES. I
have read about some
- interesting stuff that Dr. Mark Kaminski has been doing at
the U. of Michigan. I
- think that I may not be a good candidate for his study
because I have already
- had radiation. However, I have heard if studies where drugs
are used instead of
- radioactive isotopes. Does anyone have any info about anyone
- Antibodies studies for relapsed lymphoma?
- If anyone out there has any ideas for me - PLEASE DROP ME A
LINE!! If you want
- to send me literature via the mail - my address is:
- Bob Czako
- 6930 West Fitzwater
- Brecksville, OH 44141
- If you want to talk on the phone, please give me your number
and I will call
- THANKS IN ADVANCE FOR ALL OF YOUR HELP!!!!!!!
- I love you all,
I welcome your comments and suggestions.
