My dad just informed me 20 min ago that he has T Cell Lymphoma. Rarest of all of them. He’s due in for chemo next week… I don’t want him to do it, his wife doesn’t want him to do it.

I told him I’d reach out to my people (you all) and see if we can crowd source some info fairly rapidly on alternative treatments.

Anything is appreciated. This is my dad, 57 years old. Athlete. This is my guy. I haven’t even had time to digest the news yet.

He won’t do any alternative treatments unless there is data on people who have tried it. Currently with chemo he has a 50% chance of remission.

God is great. I love my Lord and I love my dad. And I love you all, thanks in advance.

When I was fighting breast breast cancer almost 6 years ago, God impressed upon me one thing based on Psalms 139: 15-16 (the entire chapter is actually amazing!).

“My frame was not hidden from You, when I was made in secret, and skillfully wrought in the depths of the earth; Your eyes have seen my unformed substance; and in Your book were all written the days that were ordained for me, when as yet there was not one of them.” ‭ What I realized is that cancer absolutely did not change what God has ordained for me from the moment I was conceived. God is merciful and He is faithful, and it’s important to remember this world is not our home. I was fortunate that I didn’t have to have chemo - I had surgery and radiation that my doctors recommended and I’m still here. Tomorrow is not guaranteed for any of us. How your Dad wants to fight this - if he chooses to fight - is a very personal decision. Everybody’s journey is different, and attitude and Faith play a major role in the outcome. Praying for your Dad, your family, and you.

“I have loved you with an everlasting love; therefore I have continued my faithfulness to you.” ‭‭Jeremiah‬ ‭31:3‬

👆yes so agree with this. He knitted us together in the womb he knew us before this time. He will never leave us or forsake us. ❤️
