Seth Edlavitch's Story and Personal Page
As many of you know, I had the shock of my life when after having headaches for a few months in July, 2013, I was diagnosed with a golf ball size tumor in my head. Six days after the tumor was discovered, I underwent brain surgery at Johns Hopkins because the doctors were concerned that the tumor was growing quickly. A few days after I returned home, my surgeon informed me that my tumor was a Large Diffuse B-Cell Lymphoma. After several tests, it was determined that the Lymphoma was contained to my brain, and as a result, I have the diagnosis of a CNS (Central Nervous System) B-Cell Lymphoma, otherwise known as brain cancer (Please note: There are several types of brain cancer. This form is a non-Hodgkin's blood based lymphoma). Once I healed from my surgery, I immediately went to the Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center for intense, in-patient, chemo treatment every other week through November, 2013. I am currently in remission, but have to go to Hopkins for monthly in-patient treatments through July, 2014. I could not have made it this far without the support and love of my friends and family - especially, my wife Melissa.
I am uniting with others to make a difference in the fight against brain tumors. The National Brain Tumor Society and Accelerate Brain Cancer Cure are making strides for a cure - but more needs to be done. Please join in my effort by joining my team or donating! The team's name is: Seth's Brain Buddies.
