Follicular lymphoma info linking latest research on epigenetics to lifestyle. Vitamin D, exercise, sleep, stress, nutrition, diet. Est. global comm. 16 yrs.
By survivors for survivors, applying new discoveries to produce optimal results.
This site provides up-to-date information on treatments for follicular lymphoma coupled with a scientifically-based plan of natural strategies developed over many years for proactive survivors to adopt as an essential guide leading to 20++ years of healthy, active survival.
Who We Are
Content on this site has been developed by a “retired” college dean, a fellow follicular lymphoma survivor diagnosed over 27 years ago, currently well and fully active, his lymphoma now fully resolved.
Other members on our team provide research and administrative support. Guidance and personal support is available, but we do not offer medical advice.
Survivors never need to feel powerless or alone. We’re here to help. As lymphoma patients ourselves, we understand.
[Personal Comment: Approaching 30 years, I’m very fortunate. Lymphoma is gone. During this time I’ve seen it all…what works, what doesn’t. It IS possible to get a glimpse of the future. If you have the desire, my team and I have the guidance. This so-called incurable disorder CAN be beaten…Robert].
What We Do
Our role is to track and evaluate the latest developments. We then communicate trustworthy, unbiased, non-commercial information to our members in a way they can relate to, understand and implement.
This international resource community, created over 16 years ago, is supported 100% by its members. No one is denied. See What the Members Say page for comments from our members around the world.
New Developments Now Making a World of Difference
Cancer research nowadays is focused on genetics.
At first that sounds grim, like there’s nothing that can be done. But really it’s the opposite of that.
As survivors of follicular lymphoma, new developments in genetics represent a huge breakthrough for us.
The breakthrough in knowledge is that our genes are not “fixed” in the functions they perform, as was thought to be the case until very recently. As TIME magazine reports “Genes are NOT our Destiny”.
Research now shows that it is the expression level of numerous genes…some of which are our normal genes…that is the MOST IMPORTANT factor of all, more so than mutations.
Our Four Pillar Gene Remediation (4P-GRS) program ** matches, to the best of our current ability, specific recommendations on nutrition, diet, exercise, sleep, stress management and optimal year-round vitamin D with new research on genes known to drive the lymphoma process. Gene expression is regulated, both before and after diagnosis, primarily by three factors: lifestyle, toxic environmental exposure(s) and possible infection(s) in the body.
** Inspired by the recently released multi million dollar Roadmap Epigenetics Project.
We offer a unique approach combining information on the best in conventional treatments with a practical lifestyle-based gene remediation program developed especially for follicular lymphoma survivors.
There is no other program like this anywhere.
Conventional treatments which have been tested in clinical trials over many years and the best in new diagnostic testing developments are covered in detail in our articles and newsletters and updated on a monthly basis.
Our members also receive complete details on how to implement our 4P-GRS program which supports spontaneous (natural) regression. We regularly receive feedback from members applying our program who have experienced natural regression. Many have never required conventional treatment. It may even be possible to eventually resolve follicular lymphoma as a so-called “incurable” cancer through adoption of strategies in support of gene remediation.
Take Heart…for the first time ever, proactive survivors can take an active role in helping themselves overcome follicular lymphoma.
Be certain…a lot can be done. Our team is here to help.

Additional Details About Our Site
This is the most prominent survivor-managed website in the world devoted exclusively to follicular lymphoma.
Our coverage on follicular lymphoma is extensive and up-to-date. It is a virtual library with over 3000 pages of material, more than in any book. The breadth and depth of coverage can be seen on our Topic Index page .
Our monthly newsletters go back over 11 years as can be seen on the Articles and Newsletters page. The 12 basic articles are updated on a regular basis.
We do not provide medical advice. Instead, we help with forward guidance to assist members when consulting with their doctors.
We have several members with types of lymphoma other than follicular, including CLL, marginal zone, mantle cell, T-cell and aggressive (diffuse) lymphomas. Most of the material on this site will be helpful for survivors in these groups.
There are several doctors in our membership, both as patients and caregivers. People come from all walks of life, with a variety of backgrounds.
Members may wish to gain encouragement and information from those with personal experience on our discussion board.

What Will Be Gained From Membership?
Follicular lymphoma is generally regarded as incurable.
However, our “full service” features listed above will provide survivors with the very best chance possible to overcome the disorder, not only holding it in remission for an extended period, but in many cases reversing it.
Thank you for visiting LymphomaSurvival.com We hope you found it informative and inspirational. A truly positive change is taking place in managing follicular lymphoma.
You are invited to join our group as outlined in the Registration page.
