Non Hodgkin's Lymphoma Can Slow an RV'er Down


Our Spring & Summer plans to visit Alaska hit a bump in the road just before leaving for the North.  Following a bunch of tests and scans I was diagnosed with Non Hodgkins Lymphoma - Stage 4 (throughout my body).  I'm in chemo for the next four months so RV'ing is on hold for now.  We have just entered our 7th year but plan to be back RV'ing when I get to remission.

We've sold our homebase in Mazatlan, Mexican and have had a house built in Buckeye, Arizona as our new home base.  We did this before the diagnosis and now the timing seems to have been very fortuitous.  Things happen for a reason.

I am enjoying Howard and Linda's adventures as they travel through Alaska.  I admit that some days I am a little jealous and wish I was there.  There is always next year.

Life is very good.....Go RV'ing as soon and as often as you can..... you never know.

Medical problems have affected our travels a few times, but not to the extent of four months of chemo. You have the right attitude.

We too have had to change plans for medical issues, just no as serious as yours. Good luck, prayers for you and your family.
