I am very frustrated by the lack of local support for lymphoma patients! I am a single mom, and I am currently in treatment for aggressive B-cell NHL. I also just got laid off from my job.
I have searched ACS and the local area for support groups, financial, and childcare help and it seems like all the organizations within an hour drive of me are specific to other types of cancer. (My treatments are keeping me pretty weak and I don't feel like driving very far.) There are some wonderful orgs that help families with sick children and breast cancer patients here, but they won't help me.
Why aren't these organizations helpful to ALL cancer patients? Is there anyone else who has found this problem ~ what did you do to find help?
