Extractions: Hodgkin's disease is a type of lymphoma. Lymphomas are cancers that develop in the lymph system, part of the body's immune system. The lymph system is made up of thin tubes that branch, like blood vessels, into all parts of the body. Lymph vessels carry lymph, a colorless, watery fluid that contains white blood cells called lymphocytes. Along the network of vessels are groups of small, bean-shaped organs called lymph nodes. Clusters of lymph nodes are found in the underarm, pelvis, neck, and abdomen. The lymph nodes make and store infection-fighting cells. The spleen (an organ in the upper abdomen that makes lymphocytes and filters old blood cells from the blood), the thymus (a small organ beneath the breastbone), and the tonsils (an organ in the throat) are also part of the lymph system. Because there is lymph tissue in many parts of the body, Hodgkin's disease can start in almost any part of the body. The cancer can spread to almost any organ or tissue in the body, including the liver, bone marrow (the spongy tissue inside the large bones of the body that makes blood cells), and spleen. Lymphomas are divided into two general types: Hodgkin's disease and non-Hodgkin's lymphomas. The cancer cells in Hodgkin's disease look a certain way under a microscope. Non-Hodgkin's lymphomas are covered in the PDQ patient information summaries on

Extractions: Overview Lymphomas are cancers of the lymphatic system - the body's blood-filtering tissues that help to fight infection and disease. Like other cancers, lymphomas, occur when cells divide too much and too fast. Growth control is lost, and the lymphatic cells may overcrowd, invade, and destroy lymphoid tissues and metastasize (spread) to other organs. There are two general types of lymphomas: "Hodgkin's Disease" (named after Dr. Thomas Hodgkin, who first recognized it in 1832) and non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. The lymphatic tissue in Hodgkin's disease contains specific cells - Reed-Sternberg cells - that are not found in any other cancerous lymphomas or cancers. These cells distinguish Hodgkin's disease (HD) from non-Hodgkin's lymphomas (NHLs). Anatomy
Extractions: Hodgkin's disease is a type of lymphoma. Lymphomas are cancers that develop in the lymphatic system, a part of the body's immune system. The job of the lymphatic system is to help fight diseases and infection. The lymphatic system includes a network of thin tubes that branch, like blood vessels, into the tissues throughout the body. Lymphatic vessels carry lymph, a colorless, watery fluid that contains infection-fighting cells called lymphocytes. Along this network of vessels are groups of small, bean-shaped organs called lymph nodes that filter the lymph as it passes through the nodes. Clusters of lymph nodes are found in the underarm, groin, neck, and abdomen. Other parts of the lymphatic system are the spleen, thymus, tonsils, and bone marrow. Like all types of cancer, Hodgkin's disease affects the body's cells. Healthy cells grow, divide, and replace themselves in an orderly manner. This process keeps the body in good repair. In Hodgkin's disease, cells in the lymphatic system grow abnormally and can spread to other organs. As the disease progresses, the body is less able to fight infection.

Extractions: Written and Produced by Li Sparks [Although I have been in remission since November 8, 1996, I have left this page the same as it expresses the way I looked at my treatment and the way that I hope you will look at yours.] So, they say you may have cancer? The big C? Take a deep breath, count to 10: Now let it out slowly. Remember, cancer is just another word, and it can't hurt you unless you let it. So now what you ask? Well, let's take this one step at a time. There are a few steps to this process and none of them have to be frightening. If you have to have cancer, Hodgkin's is the one to get. Always keep in mind it is the most treatable, the most curable (different than treatable), and has wonderful long-term prognoses. If you would like to read about my personal health status, if you click on the "Back to Li's Home Page" option you will be sent to my personal pages. I keep my treatment schedule there as well as information about how I'm doing personally. I have also added my story as many of you have requested, and a Hall of Fame page for all the people who have taken care of me during treatment.
Hodgkins Disease Mail List Hodgkin s Disease Mail List. There is a really great resource on the net forpeople with Hello and Welcome to the Hodgkin s Disease List Server. http://www.deltronix.com/public/li/listserver.html
Extractions: There is a really great resource on the 'net for people with Hodgkin's Disease, their support system, or anyone who is just interested in learning more from people who deal with it on a daily basis. It's a Mail List started by Peter Guethlein, a Hodgkin's patient himself, and it has been a benefit to me everyday. I am certain that it can help you or the people who love you. The details from Peter can be found below, and you can subscribe directly from this page. Essentially, the list consists of patients, parents, spouses, friends, and relatives. The information is great because it comes from personal experience and not a textbook. You're about to start chemo and want to know how it is going to go? Ask, we have a lot of experience to share. You're feeling depressed and need to talk to someone who will understand? Write, we do. You just want to lurk and read the posts, that's great too. It's simple to sign up, and the messages will come to you like your regular e-mail does. You can respond or not to whatever you want, and you can choose to write to the individual or the group. Whatever you decide, I think that you will find the group to be very friendly and always there when you need them. So, without further ado, here is the information. I hope you join us in cyberspace!
