Lymphoma is a cancer of the immune system categorized in two different forms: Hodgkin's and Non-Hodgkin's. There are over 40 kinds of lymphoma, and there is much to learn about this elusive cancer which affects over 544,000 people in the United States. Ron Skoronski was diagnosed with this cancer in 2007 and teamed up with UW hematologist, Dr. Brad Kahl, to accelerate the fight against lymphoma and to find cures. Ron personally donated $1 million to establish the Forward Lymphoma Fund.
On this program, Ron Skoronski tells his personal journey from that shocking moment when he was told he has lymphoma. Dr. Brad Kahl highlights the advances being made by the Lymphoma Research Team at the UW Carbone Cancer Center and the additional research project made possible by the Forward Lymphoma Fund.
