Kim’s Advice to Other Lymphoma Patients

Sign in to watch the entire program.

 

In our lymphoma patient education program, medical experts cover every detail you’ll need to know about non-Hodgkin lymphomas, from symptoms to testing to diagnosis to the kinds of treatments available.

But we also wanted to include the voices of people who’ve gone through the roller coaster of emotions, the discomfort of biopsies and CT scans, and the pain of seeing their families’ worry. Kim Dippo is one of the patients who shared her advice on coping with it all in Patient Education on Non-Hodgkin Lymphomas from Diagnosis to Treatment.
