In lieu of an abstract, here is a brief excerpt of the content:

395 Acknowledgments During the course of my battle with lymphoma, I realized how very important it is for someone struggling with a life-threatening illness to have something to live for. I would first like to acknowledge my family—the people whose love and support during this time were essential to my survival. My love for them gave me something very important to live for: my husband, Paul J. Schwartz; my parents, Ruth W. and Edward Adler; and my sister and brother, Stephanie Adler and Peter Adler. I would like to thank the people who commented on the manuscript and helped me improve it in many ways: Dr. Stephanie Adler; Dr. Marsha Altschuler; Dr. Anne Atkinson; Dr. Wendy Raymond; Dr. Paul J. Schwartz; my editors, Jacqueline Wehmueller, Kim Johnson, Linda Strange, and Grace Carino; my artist, Jacqueline Schaeffer; my indexer, Alexa Selph; and, especially , Dr. Michael Bishop and Dr. Jeffrey Baker for their thoughtful advice and helpful suggestions on the first and second editions of the book, respectively . Any remaining faults or errors are my own. I would like to thank Henry Dreher, for bringing hope back into my life when I’d lost it, and all of my friends on the NHL and SON mailing lists who have shared this journey with lymphoma. I would like to take the time to remember my Aunt Shirley, who gave me the book of poetry containing “Cancer Garden” and later embarked on her own lymphoma journey, now ended, as well as Sylvia Brown, Anne Campbell, Deb Larson, and Scott Pallack, friends who have also completed their journeys with lymphoma. I would like to thank Dr. Marsha Altschuler and Dr. Elaine Beretz for their help and support during the very difficult time when, still coping with severe debilitation, I returned to teaching. Finally, I would like to thank Dr. Irene Kuter for saving my life. This page intentionally left blank ...
