    Today I found out I have Stage 1 Follicular Lmphnoma. I am 48, married with a grown son. I am scared I'm going to die. My husband tells me they caught it at an early stage and it's treatable. What concerns me is that the swollen lymph nodes appeared quickly, so who's to say the Lymphnoma won't devolope into Stage 2 or affect the one kidney I have. So many worries. Is there any one out there that's been disagnosed with cancer or have been? I could really use someone to talk to.

    Thanks

    I'm so very sorry to hear this. I don't have cancer but it has touched my life very personally through family members. Yours is treatable, that's a major plus. I will say a prayer for you tonight, and if you ever need someone to talk to, please feel free to PM me. Stay positive.

    I don't know if you're religious or not, but one of the best ways I can convey support is through this verse: "Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.” -Joshua 1:9

    It was one of my grandma's favorites and has gotten me through some tough times. All my best to you.

    So sorry [​IMG] BYC does have a "Cancer Support Group," please do check it out. Just put that name in the search box and it will come up. I just checked to make sure and see many of my BYC friends on there.

    Good morning Mamachic1967. Very sorry to hear of your diagnosis. But I'm very glad it was caught early. I do not have the same type of cancer you have, but early diagnosis and treatment is key with any Cancer. I subscribed to a cancer support thread here at BYC a while back. It has some really nice folks who can listen, encourage, and possibly educate you. Here is the link:

    So....talk about.....CANCER SUPPORT THREAD !!

    Hope you can pop in sometime. Have a wonderful day :hugs
