Just 5 months later, in November of 2009, a new node was found deep in her neck. Given it’s location it could not be biopsied but a swelling in her neck in December of that year started the journey once again. The swelling turned into a lump which was biopsied in February of 2010 and proved to be Diffused Large B Cell Lymphoma, a faster growing cousin of the original cancer, which resulted in 3 more rounds of chemotherapy and an autologous bone-marrow transplant in June of 2010. Today Lynda is in remission.
Understanding the stresses that a disease puts on the family, having 20 years of teaching experience and being a professional organizer with Professional Organizers in Canada, Lynda believes that ‘with organization comes empowerment’ and that having a positive ‘Never Give Up’ attitude is essential to healing and living life to its fullest.
