Survivor, stage 4 Mantle Cell Lymphoma (MCL)

Lynda was diagnosed with stage 4 Mantle Cell Lymphoma (MCL) in August 2016. She was told the average life expectancy was 5 years with a 20 month average “remission” time if remission could be reached.

After commuting 3,600 miles round trip from Boise, Idaho to MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, Texas for eight months, followed by four months of R Hyper-CVAD chemotherapy (which was in-patient), Lynda’s cancer is currently “dormant” (She chooses to use the word dormant as “remission” often gets confused with “cure”).

She continues her daytime job in a law firm while writing on her lunch hour, after work and on the weekends.
