Impact Stories Highlight: Vivian’s Story 

Vivian was diagnosed with diffuse large B cell Lymphoma after a routine mammogram screening in August 2022. 

“It was August 24, 2022 4:00pm the moment that changed everything… I thought I was just getting the results of my mammogram. I was wrong! It turned into a devastating diagnosis of diffuse large B cell Lymphoma. 

September 2022 was my first chemotherapy session and there will be a lot more treatments and doctor’s visits to come. I know this is a tough journey, but I am positive, and I know I can get through this.  We are all facing different challenges in life so hang in there and don’t lose hope.

Thank you to my families and friends who are always there to help and support me. Your prayers helped me a lot. Thank you to all my prayer warriors and unsung heroes.

A huge thank you also to CLRA – Patient Aid for their emotional and financial support.  This helps me a lot in this time of need. More blessings to you!”
