Diagnosed with Cancer – What’s Next?

Jan 12, 2015 03:49AM, Published by Family Features, Categories: Family Features, Family Features Lifestyle




(Family Features) Receiving a cancer diagnosis often comes as a shock, for the person who is diagnosed as well as family and friends. It can be challenging to know the right questions to ask, or how to get the right information heading in to treatment.

Erica Campbell can attest to this experience, as she was diagnosed with stage IV Hodgkin lymphoma, after a routine doctor’s visit last year.

“When I was first diagnosed, I was scared and there were a lot of unknowns,” said Erica. “But soon, I realized that I’m not alone – my friends and family are 100 percent behind me, and my doctor made sure I had access to detailed information about Hodgkin lymphoma and understood my treatment options.”

A new resource, ARCH, was created recently to help the nearly 80,000 people each year who are diagnosed with lymphoma, and those who care for them, find information and support.¹                                                                      

There are actually over 60 different types of lymphoma, ranging from aggressive to slower-growing or chronic.² A better understanding of the specific diagnosis may help people feel more empowered during treatment discussions and better prepared for the emotional and physical challenges that may come later.

ARCH is a partnership between The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, Lymphoma Research Foundation, CancerCare, Association of Community Cancer Centers and Genentech. Along with support for people affected by lymphoma, Lymphomaresources.com will include free downloadable materials for community cancer centers. These materials are for educational purposes and not intended to replace the advice and guidance of a doctor.

“Cancer can be an isolating experience, but if you are living with lymphoma you don’t have to feel alone,” Erica emphasized. “Getting accurate information about your diagnosis is an important first step.”
