The formula above is not meant as a math trick. But it does depict some tricky math for cancer survivors like me.
All that I have to say about this search and this topic is that it is good to be counted among the one in four. That is, according to this source, one in four NHL (non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma) survivors have a chance of surviving for five years. Count me at 5.8 years since my stem cell transplant and 7 years since the diagnosis of mantle cell lymphoma (MCL), a potent form of NHL.
Reading this article and seeing this illustration of the three bags of stem cells makes for a personal flashback to the August 2007 SCT procedure at City of Hope.
