The Valkenaar's and Lymphoma

Mary was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (actually, primary mediastinal diffuse large B-cell lymphoma) in May, 2000. To help answer the many questions we've encountered, we've put together these pages.

Mary's Journal. (Update 10/14/00) Archive of Mary's email journal she's sending once in a while.

Timeline. Read about the events leading up to discovery and beginning of treatment Mary's cancer.

Treatment. What we're doing, expecting, and experiencing.

What. All you wanted to know and more about lymphoma.

Thanks. At serious risk of leaving someone out, we'll name a few of the many people who were such an encouragement to us during the week of discovery.

Team in Training (February, 2004). Mary is participating in a marathon walk to benefit the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.

Today (January 5, 2006). Treatments are done. Now - life!

If you'd like to send Mary a note, feel free to at email mary.
