T-Cell LymphoBlastic Lymphoma (12 year old boy)

Nick is a 12 year old boy who fought T-cell LymphoBlastic Lymphoma and is now dealing with the after-math. In this testimonial you will hear from Nick’s mom about the journey they’ve been through. WHEN CANCER HITS YOU LIKE A TORNADO..

In this interview, Pamela Livingstone from New Jersey (USA) shares the journey her family went through with her son’s cancer.

Her son, Nick, was diagnosed with T-Cell Lymphoblastic Lymphoma when he was 12 years old. The early signs were misdiagnosed for a couple of months by the family’s pediatrician. One morning he was playing baseball, but by the end of that day he was in emergency surgery, fighting for his life.

At the time of this interview Nick was 15.5 years old, and while he is dealing with the harsh side effects of the treatment he has undergone, he remains without any evidence of cancer in his body.

MyChildCancer’s founder, Oded Grinstein, is interviewing Pamela on the different aspects of her son’s disease, treatment, aftermath and challenges. This interview is part of MyChildCancer’s mission to extract hidden life-saving information and make it easily accessible to other parents all over the world. Because knowledge saves lives.
