Its been some time, but I am back.

Just before I turned 30 I was told my anaplastic t cell lymphoma has relapsed after fighting since 2008. I had much treatment ncuding an auto stem cell transplant just over a year ago. Now I am on the new sgn-35 and will be undergoing an allo stem cell transplant in just a few weeks. Just last week, I was told I have a 40% of this curing me. I went home to my three children and we devastated...but not for long. The most important thing for all of us to remember is that the doctors are giving us statistics that are general. Each person and their circumstances are unique...and even those given no percentages of a cure, should never loe their faith and hope...for the Ultimate Physician is our Lord...one who can cure instantly..one wh can work through our team of specialists. Lets not forget His timing and plan is nothing short of PERFECT!

    Hi
    Hi Natalie,
    I'm so sorry you are having to start another process to fight this nasty cancer. I guess all we can do is keep fighting the battle and hope in the grand scheme of things all will turn out ok. I agree with you that God has a plan for each and every one of us and in the end he will determine whats to be or not be. In the meantime we have to hold strong in our faith in him and know that whatever plan he has will be good, no matter what! For me, it's a win win situation no matter what as long as he is charting my course...as you said "his plan is nothing short of PERFECT"! I will be keeping you in my thoughts and prayers. Please let us know how everything goes for you. Much love to you...Sue

I will be praying for you that your stem cell transplant is a success!!! I have three kids the youngest just turned 4 yrs. and not to short change my life but I only worry about them as I'm sure you do that as well! Please take care of yourself and keep us posted on how your transplant went.

    I am so glad to see you post. I am not on here much as I am enjoying every single day and feel blessed every day I wake up and feel good. I am sorry you have to have another procedure but you are right. It is in God's hands and you have the winning attitude to be one of the 40%. God bless you and I can't tell you how many times I have wondered about you and asked about you. God bless you Joanie

    Dear Natalie,

    Natalie somehow I missed your post. I am sorry you have relapsed and have to have another
    allo stem cell transplant. Given the faith you have in our Lord, you can add 10% to the
    40% of a cure. 50% is great. You will be in my prayers always.

    Your daughter is beautiful as you are also. God Bless Maggie
