Mar 7, 2019 · Chronic leukemia. Terrified bc I can’t tolerate chemo in Blood Cancers & Disorders

Depending on where you live, there is a CLL leukemia and lymphoma society in Minneapolis and a April 27 all morning info program on how to deal. If you can't make it to one of those, I would suggest an expert in Dr. Sameer Parikh at the Rochester Hematology department. He was my doctor through everything and is just fantastic. Blessings to you on this journey. Robb

Feb 28, 2019 · Coping with long term cancers in Blood Cancers & Disorders

I am so sorry to hear as I have had cll plus two other lymphomas. Because the mind can be our enemy, I found great help through my Christian faith and the many friends who prayed constantly for guidance, help and His peace. Medicine can do so much and how we talk to ourselves about what is going on is another important aspect. But the other key I found was activating my faith in the Lord. I will pray for you,

Stephanie, I know the feeling of discovering cancer especially your kind. Mayo found 3 different ones for me. Today, with prayers, great medicine and how I dealt with the tough 5 months of chemo, I am healed. There is no cancer. As a result of this, I am writing a book for a New York publisher that is all about how we can go through adversity and come out whole.
"The Power of 3" is what I discovered. Ask the right questions, find support with friends, an advocate and your faith, and activate your God given gifts. In doing so, you will be so much more successful dealing with a tough disease. May the Lord be your healer along with the great Mayo team. Robb

First of all, Mayo knows how to do this as well as well as anyone. Having said that it is not easy and I had to start at 7:00 am and finished at 5:00 PM. The first chemo was the hardest but they knew how to handle my initial reaction. The next two were ok and the last 3 were somewhat harder after the fact. I am now writing a book on how I handled the 5 month journey with a New York publisher and how I made it through. The book will be called the Power of 3 and this kept me alive and making the best out of a tough situation. Blessings to you.

Last year I was diagnosed with 3 types of cancer after experiencing real pain in my stomach area. I had leukemia, large B CELL and Follicular lymphoma all at once. Needless to say, our initial reaction was devastating. We went to Rochester and saw Dr. Parikh. After test after tests, we started a series of all day chemo treatments at Rochester that lasted 4 months. I love Mayo and the people. They along with much prayer and great medicine helped save my life. I used what I teach leaders and the "Power of 3" gave me a path to walk through this incredibly tough time. Today, all cancer is gone. I love the Lord and Mayo Clinic. Dr. Parikh is the best!
