Senator Arlen Spector died today. He had two separate bouts with HL, and then a brief bout with NHL. I rememered him because my doc told me years ago that his HL was the same strain that I had. He is an example of how lymphoma can morph into differening forms of the disease, usually years later. Of course, we are lucky in a way, given that most cases of lymphoma are put into permanent remission with the first-line therapies.
I am intereseted in hearing about cases of one lymphoma become some other, if anyone ,wished to comment. Of course, several of our regualrs have already discussed their multi-cancers history.
