There are 30 kinds of lymphoma and Thompson says his is “the good kind”.
One of my brothers was diagnosed with the “good kind” of lymphoma many years ago, on the order of 20 years. He’s undergone “remission” several times, and had another round of chemo, etc...
It is hard to tell the difference between his activity level and that of most other persons, though for those who know him, it cuts into his after-work hours time a bit when he’s more in the “fighting the lympho” stage.
This is not necessarily a disqualifier for him to do whatever he wants to do - no more than “prior heart incident” in importance, and certainly less than any “prior stroke” should be considered.
As with Mrs.Edwards, prayers for him and his family.
Prayers, prayers, prayers - health first!
prayers for Fred and his family!
