Follicular lymphoma survival covering BOTH latest treatments and scientifically-based natural strategies. Nutrition, diet, vitamin D, exercise, sleep, stress. Gene expression. Regression. Remission. Transformation. Exclusive 4P-GRS Program.
Follicular lymphoma responds to BOTH treatments AND lifestyle.
This is a global community site operating independently for 18 years.
Follicular lymphoma survivors (including those with other types of indolent lymphoma) can live for many years while enjoying a full and active life.
Who We Are
We are the most prominent survivor-managed website in the world devoted to follicular lymphoma.
Content has been developed by a “retired” college dean, a follicular lymphoma survivor diagnosed over 30 years ago, currently well and fully active with no remaining evidence of lymphoma.
We do not provide medical advice regarding follicular lymphoma survival. Instead, we help with guidance based on data prepared by experts to assist members when consulting with their doctors.
Personal Comment: The knowledge gained from my own experience during this “journey” of over 30 years, combined with the latest developments in follicular lymphoma are what I wish to share with fellow survivors and caregivers. My personal history is detailed in Article #12.
I’m confident that the information and encouragement you will find here will help guide you toward your own success.
Please see What the Members Say page.
What We Do
We offer our fellow lymphoma survivors guidance and encouragement.
We provide information on BOTH the currently approved full range of conventional treatments AND the latest scientifically-based natural strategies specific to follicular lymphoma.
New research indicates that about a quarter of newly diagnosed patients could benefit from early treatment. The remaining 75% might be able to defer/avoid treatment. Treatment in all cases must be carefully chosen.
Regarding natural strategies, we gather the latest research on what makes cancer “tick” from leading scientists around the world. We then apply this data via our 4P-GRS program (see below) to the expression of genes driving follicular and other lymphomas.
In bridging the gap between natural strategies and treatments, people need credibility.
We have combined this new understanding of cancer into a set of lifestyle-based strategies referred to as the Four Pillar Gene Remediation Strategies (4P-GRS) Program.
After many years of observation it is apparent that this program can lead to natural regression of follicular lymphoma for survivors in clinical remission.
We are fully independent, entirely free of advertising, supported 100% by our members for over 18 years.
Who This Site is For
This site is for survivors of all ages with a strong will-to-live who desire to participate in overcoming their disorder.
These dedicated people:
√ recognize the merits of conventional treatments if/when justified in accordance with the latest research.
√ realize that their BEST chance for achieving extended survival is to learn about follicular lymphoma, combining BOTH knowledge of treatments with a willingness to adopt scientifically-based lifestyle strategies.
√ understand that the information received and knowledge to be gained must be more than superficial.
√ realize that sound knowledge promotes confidence, enabling productive communication with doctors and other health care providers.
√ place a great deal of importance on the value of their life, specifically a life with health and vitality.
√ want to be well, have a lot to live for… a lot of dreams yet to be fulfilled.
The Way Ahead is Now Brighter
Genetic testing for newly diagnosed survivors, now in development, will help identify the anticipated 20~25% of patients who could benefit from early treatment. When this happens, it is expected that an increased number of individuals in the remaining 75~80% will have the option to defer treatment (watch and wait) depending on additional clinical factors.
In addition, we are delighted to observe a MAJOR new development taking place. Cancer is (finally) catching up to heart disease in recognizing the importance of lifestyle strategies, not only in prevention but also in “after the fact” management. Our 4P-GRS program zeroes in on the best lifestyle strategies available based on the latest research, specifically designed for survivors of indolent lymphomas.

How Our Program Works
Much more can be offered to survivors of follicular lymphoma than was the case just five years ago.
It has now been shown scientifically that the lifestyle choices we adopt alter the activity (expression) level of our genes 24/7, including those that regulate lymphoma.
It’s all about the achievement of natural regression with follicular lymphoma — which some people refer to as spontaneous remission. That is the ultimate objective — regression of follicular lymphoma by scientific means. Not just in one node but in ALL of them, leading to the ultimate resolution of the disorder.
The strategies for natural regression we suggest – including things to avoid — are summarized in Article #3.
Details on What We Offer
√ Access to our copyright, time-tested Four Pillar Gene Remediation Strategies (4P-GRS) Program with information on diet, nutrition, physical activity, sleep, stress management, vitamin B complex and vitamin D optimization. This program, unlike any other, has been created specifically for follicular lymphoma and other indolent lymphomas.
√ 12 articles to help understand the confusing nature of follicular lymphoma, written in plain English.
√ Monthly newsletters going back to 2004 summarizing the latest research, treatments, developments and perspectives on follicular lymphoma.
√ A virtual library with over 3000 reference pages (See our Topic Index).
√ A discussion board for members covering lifestyle and treatment matters, moderated to ensure productive, supportive dialogue.
√ Prompt email support.
√ Phone consultation (Please see the Phone Consultation Page for available times).
The knowledge available to survivors here is unique. Personal support is offered with the highest integrity.

We Appreciate the Feedback We’ve Received from our Members this Past Month
As always, thank you for all of the hard work that goes into the newsletters and articles. Thank you in particular for the careful attention to innovations and breakthroughs, as well as helping us to navigate through the misinformation that permeates the field. May God bless you and your team! … Kendall, Wisconsin
Thank you and everyone for your hard work. This newsletter has been an important source of information, and most importantly consolation, for me in my 10-year “ownership” of follicular lymphoma. I would have felt like I was wandering alone in the desert without its help … Melanie, Georgia
I have found your articles to be more informative and with more practical advice than any which I have received from the doctors, specialists, hospital or seminars here in New Zealand! … Elaine, New Zealand
I cannot begin to tell you how great I am feeling now that I’m on your site!! I’m newly diagnosed and in a “watch and wait. But I am following seriously the 4 pillars and BELIEVE. I can beat this … Sharon, Pennsylvania
Additional commentary each month over the years can be seen on our What the Members Say page.
Additional Details About Our Site
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.
Thank you for visiting Lymphoma Survival. We hope you found it informative and inspirational. We sincerely believe that the content and guidance here will help you or your loved one control follicular lymphoma as a manageable disorder.
You are invited to join our group as outlined on the Registration page.
Best in Health from the Lymphoma Survival team.
