September 25, 2009 - A Survivor's Testimony: Never Give Up

Here’s a video containing the testimony of Dr. Samuel Gruber, a longtime lymphoma survivor:

The Survivors Club - Doc Gruber - Lymphoma Survivor

There’s a lesson for us here about the importance of being our own advocate: of keeping up with the medical literature (as best we can, anyway), and talking with our doctors about the things we read.

There’s also a comforting truth in what Dr. Gruber says about the rapid pace of research in lymphoma treatments. The longer we hang on, the more new treatments will become available.

Reason for hope!
