“Almost every family in America has had to deal with cancer at one time or another and far too many don’t have access to the quality health care I am receiving and this is not right.”

Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma is a less common cancer which develops in the lymphatic system – the vast network of vessels and glands in the body.
