Hodgkin's lymphoma cancer cells begin in a lymph node—often in the neck—then progress to other nodes.

SURGERY VS. HODGKINS LYMPHOMA… HL IS THE VICTOR!

CHEMOTHERAPY VS. HODGKINS LYMPHOMA… HL IS THE VICTOR!

RADIATION VS. HODGKINS LYMPHOMA… HL IS THE VICTOR!

STEM CELLS VS. HODGKINS LYMPHOMA…

…STEM CELLS KICK HODGKINS LYMPHOMA’S BUTT!


In 2003, 13 year-old Kirk Lee was diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphoma, a disease that affects the body’s lymph nodes.

Kirk Lee first noticed something was wrong when he detected a knot on his neck. His grandmother Carolyn Lee said he was taken to the hospital and consequently diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphoma. He was immediately transported to Jackson for surgery to remove tissue from his lungs and undergo chemotherapy.

After receiving radiation, chemotherapy and some experimental treatment in Jackson, Lee still had third-stage lymphoma, meaning the disease was in his abdomen and his neck. (1)

When neither of those treatments was successful, he was taken for stem cell transplant therapy.

That stem cell treatment put his illness into remission.
