Recurrence

My brother was diagnosed a little over a year ago with HD. Since then he has been declared free twice. it is now back again for the third time. I need someone to let me know if this is "normal". he has gone though chemo and radiation the last time (7mo ago). He has also had the stem cell transplant using his own stem cells. I refuse to give up hope but I know he is frustrated.

    Please don't give up hope- what does his oncologist say?- there is no real "normal" as far as I know for cancer..each person is different...my thoughts are with all of o.
