I'm Stepping for my Beautiful Mum, who lost her battle in October 2022 to Waldenstrom macroglobulinemia, a rare subtype of B-cell Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma (NHL). It affects only 1-2% of people with NHL. WM is an indolent type of lymphoma (blood cancer) that develops over a long period of time. Indolent means it usually grows very slowly and may or may not need treatment. Like most indolent lymphomas, WM cannot be cured, but it can respond very well to treatment. Unfortunately this wasn't the case for my Mum. She relapsed much sooner than most patients with WM (every 12-18 months). Mum endured many rounds of treatment including IV chemo, oral chemo, IV ImmunoGlobulin replacement therapy, so many blood transfusions we lost count early on. She suffered from many infections along the way but she kept fighting with everything she had. Even when her tank was on empty. In the end Mum's WM spread to her nervous system (spinal cord and brain). She lost the use of her legs, but kept her wit and silly humour until the end. We lost her 4 months after this relapse. Watching and supporting my Mum through her fierce battle filled me with admiration for her. I've always known that my Mum was strong but this was something else. She was fighting for us. Her husband of 45+ years, her 6 kids and 6 grandkids. I saw that love and fight in her eyes, heard it in her voice and felt it in her hugs. I miss her so much every day and life will never be the same without her. I'm incredibly proud to call her my Mum and I love her beyond words. She certainly earned her angels wings. "Love you more" Mum.

A personal journey to help raise awareness, knowledge and understanding. I was diagnosed with Stage 4 Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma, or Folicular Lymphoma or FL almost 2 years ago. It was a shock to say the least. Treatment is simply watch and wait... I'm fortunate, it is slow growing. I hope that you will join me to help, not just to help build funds for research to learn more about the various types of Lymphoma, but also help those of us that are diagnosed with it. As all of us that are 'Stepping' in March for Lymphoma, we step to raise awareness. My goal is a low one because I would love to achieve it. My biggest challenge as my friends know is the steps themselves. One of the conditions is lack of energy - so I am challenging myself to push through this barrier and reach 8,000 steps a day. My average this year is 4,500 steps so far. 2023, it was 5,200, in 2019 it was 9,200. I have struggled for energy, I now know why. I, we, seek your support, through cheers and/or donation and thank you in sharing to help build awareness and knowledge. I look forward to meeting people both virtually and maybe socially that are not only members of this group, but allys. There is no discrimination.

My son Daniel was diagnosed in September 2023 and Lymphoma Australia provided excellent support for him, particularly the Lymphoma nurses. It was such a terrible time, and the information really helped to corral my fears. Daniel is in remission now and we are looking forward to paying some of it back through Steps for Lymphoma.

I’m stepping for my husband who has had Non Hodgkin Lymphoma in 2009 (stage one), 2019 (stage 4) and has now recurred (stage 3). He has been through surgeries, radiation therapy, aggressive chemo and is now post autologous stem cell transplant so he hopefully can prevent it recurring ever again. This disease has had a huge impact on our whole family as he has gone through complications and infections with repeated hospitalisation. Having practical information, resources and supports makes a huge difference in getting us through these challenges.

It has been ine hell of a ride with many highs and super lows but the support and resources offered by Lymphoma Australia are great! Having the nurses online and part of the Facebook group and so active to with answering questions is WONDERFUL! We need this to continue! I wish to see many more thousands of sunrises! 🌅

I'm stepping up for Steve (my husband) who was diagnosed with stage 4 Angio Immunoblastic Non Hodgkins lymphoma in August last year. He's currently in hospital following his recent stem cell transplant. If you can support us to reach my goal that would be great.

I was diagnosed with CLL in 2021. Unfortunately so was my brother that same year. We are both on watch and wait, but he has just had hip surgery, so I’m stepping for both of us!

I am so appreciative of the amazing specialist treatment & so very grateful for the research already done to date that has given my son a chance to fight his rare Composite Grey Zone Lymphoma. Being part of this Fundraiser is to further research & keep improving treatment plans & hopefully find a cure.

I’m stepping for Lymphoma in celebration of my remission from Diffuse Large B-Cell Lymphoma, a form of Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. Lymphoma Australia’s nurse support service has been a great help during a challenging time of diagnosis and treatment of my cancer, and I am so happy to be supporting them this March as part of the Steps for Lymphoma fundraising campaign.

My son Daniel and I have created a team “Sully Shakes It Off” to celebrate his recent remission from Diffuse Large B Cell non- Hodgkin’s lymphoma. Lymphoma Australia’s programs were a great help during diagnosis and treatment- especially the nurses. We are keen to support the organisation to continue its great work.

As many of you are aware, I have Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma & have had treatment including radiation for a few years & am still continuing treatment. I can’t thank the Cancer team enough for their ongoing support so have decided to raise money, with your help, to Steps for Lymphoma.Team
